Crocheted Bike Makes Quite the Cycling Fashion Statement

Someone pointed out that it looks like the work of Agata Olek , and judging by the pattern and colors, it really does look like it could be one of her pieces. She has some pretty amazing yarn-covered bikes to her name. Olek's art certainly has a way to bring attention to bikes, and by extension, cycling culture in a city like NYC. And if covering bikes with crocheted cosies weren't enough, she even yarn bombed the Charging Bull in downtown NYC! Now that softens up the cityscape .
