Description:  The artists were tasked with creating a unique graphic identity for the six-mile crosstown Lance Armstrong Bikeway. The artwork has four components: free-standing solar-powered signs; benches; and large-scale “tunnels”—all made from looped, powder-coated steel--and road paint markings. The modular pieces help to orient cyclists and provide wayfinding, lighting, and rest stops. The color is taken from the famous yellow jersey worn each year by the winner of the Tour de France.
