Velo Village is a three-day celebration of rural cycling, where over 1500 bicycle lovers will converge on British Columbia’s artisan and cultural Mecca, Salt Spring Island, to participate in a cyclorama of social, cultural and recreational activities. Among other issues, the conference will address policy development as it relates to cycling through a workshop with Rural Mobility Solutions.
The pART PROJECT sculptures will be displayed at Velo Village during the duration of the event. To view the pieces and place a bid online today, please visit: http://www.sram.com/
“We commend the artists for their innovative transformation of bicycle parts and thank them for their charitable contribution to World Bicycle Relief,” said F.K. Day, President and Founder of World Bicycle Relief and Executive Vice President of SRAM Corporation. “We invite people to visit our website, to view the art, and to see yet another expression of the Power of Bicycles. All of the proceeds generated from the pART PROJECT auction will be used to help mobilize rural communities in need and improve lives.”
