The Circle City Bicycles blog contains info on bicycles, cycling events, pro racing, bicycle touring, and just about anything else cycling related. Since our bike shop is located in Indianapolis, we focus on biking in the Midwest, but cycling fans anywhere in the world should find this blog interesting. We try to post daily Monday through Friday, but we occasionally miss a day. Each Friday we try to have an interesting bicycle related photo.
Kraken Upcycle - Winner of the 2015 Grand Mediocre East Coast Championship
Today's Friday photo comes from the 2015 Baltimore Kinetic Sculpture Race. This is a 14 mile "race" that includes a stretch in Chesapeake Bay. This year's winner of the Grand Mediocre East Coast Championship was the Kraken Upcycle. Most of the entrants are short on practicality, but show an amazing amount of creativity. Here's a video from the 2006 race that shows some of the entrants in action. This video from the 2015 event shows the Tick Tock Alligator entrant in the water. The event is hosted each year by the American Visionary Art Museum. If you want to see or enter the 2016 race, mark your calendar for Saturday, May 7, 2016.
