Local environmental artist Michelle Lee designed this beautiful and functional bike rack in commemoration of last year’s US Pro Cycling Challenge in Boulder, CO. Built from a combination of steel and Corian cladding, the Ribbon was designed to fit in with the city’s theme of cycling and car-free transportation. Lee designed the piece using 3D software and handmade models, before using Corian to make its stunning white curves. Lee, who is a cycling enthusiast, envisioned the four bike racks as a sculptural monument to the Challenge. “It sort of embodies the motion of cyclists on the road and all the hill climbs,” says Lee.
