Bicycle built for two

An interesting artbike seen at the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History in an exhibit about love. I asked if this bike is ridable, but the museum staff would not let me test it.

Back to back bicycle built for two

This bike might be a metaphor for relations as a power struggle in which each person pulls the other to his or her direction. The “stronger” partner “wins,” but it’s exhausting and eventually futile for both. What a drag, huh?

The Museum of Art and History (MAH) is totally cool and you should visit if you’re in the area. You can see this bike in the “All You Need Is Love” exhibit running through July 29 2012. There’s also a gift shop featuring locally made crafts and prints. Little know fact: MAH Director Nina Simon is a total, hard core bike nerd.

    I know, right? I totally wanted to try it out. Loved the bike event last Friday, especially Jeff Caplan’s (AKA Dr. Wasabi) sculptures.

    Yeah, Dr Wasabi’s bike sculptures are pretty cool!
