Arty bike racks

I’ve been checking out all the art bike racks for years, as a long term cyclist, I’ve attached my precious to many different things to avoid her getting stolen.   I love that Portland, Oregon has introduced a local authority procedure with guidelines of how to apply for their Art Racks (non standard bicycle racks), and NY.  I think that New York lead the charge with David Byrne contributing a couple of designs.  Now there are competions all round the world, from Melbourne to Seoul, to combine art and pedal power.  Today, I found the “Parking Squid” by Susan Robb which is installed in Seattle.  It is fun, got great curves, kids can climb on it and it actually works as a functional bike rack for more than two bikes.  Brilliant!
