The Sculpture Takes Shape

The cog bike peleton makes it way up the Hills of Rochdale passing the Town Hall, house and tree, two bees buzz around the brightly coloured cog flowers and imaginary man gets a final lick of paint. The ReCyCle Rochdale Kinetic Art Bike Sculpture takes shape in the artists studio ready for it’s grand unveiling on Saturday at Rochdale Pioneers Museum Tour de France Countdown Party.

The Cog Bike Peleton Gets Ready

Visitors to the Cooperation on Wheels exhibition created some great Cog Bikes for our Recycle Rochdale Peleton. There area an amazing assortment of bike types and styles including a super-cool BMX, Sports For All racer and a unicycle (or two).

As some of the young art bike artists were interested in how the Cog Bikes are made into solid artworks and we couldn’t do any welding at the Sparth Community Centre or the Rochdale Pioneers Museum here is a short film of welding one of the bikes too…
