Why should your best throw-aways go to the curb when those recyclables also make the best art supplies? This year you can show your neighbors just how creative you are when you participate in the first ever Garden Station Recycled Art Bike Contest. Be outrageous. Be daring. Bring on the flair and win prizes and bragging rights for the year.
Turn your bicycle in a functional work of art by reusing materials that would normally go to a landfill or recycling center. Anything you can think of can become a part of your ride when you make a statement about reuse of materials, everyday art and the best form of transportation for you and the community.
Bikes will be reviewed at 1pm, Saturday, April 26th at Garden Station by our panel of highly capable judges including local artists and representatives from Bike Miami Valley. After judging, participants will embark on the parade ride lead by Courteous Mass Dayton. The ride will leave Garden Station to cruise through the Oregon District to the 2nd Street Market and back to Garden Station where the winners will be announced.
As word is getting out about this event, more prize donors are stepping up, but be prepared to win some really fun gifts from local merchants and sponsors. There is no entry fee and registration and the lineup of entries will take place just before the judging at 1pm.
