August 2015 Theme Day: Bicycle


A big bicycle in Corvara, to publicize the "Maratona dles Dolomites" - Marathon of the Dolomites.

This year we had the 29th edition of the "Maratona dles Dolomites" which was held July 5, 2015.
It has been a big event with more than 9,000 bikers and, of course, bicycles.

Visit the official site of this event here.
What Wikipedia says is here.

Each 1st day of the month is "Theme Day" of the City Daily Photo Community.

That is one finely sculpted bike.

Kate said...

9,000 bikes and bikers are quite a few; what an event that must be. Is your image a permanent sculpture?

Karl Demetz said...

Yes, it is.

Is it mostly carved from wood, Karl? It is very handsome. I suspoct it will not remain this handsome for long if it is left outside in the weather.

Oh, I don't fancy riding this bike on the Maratona; but it is in its right place!

It's hard enough to ride on the flat, makes me puffed out just thinking about the rises Karl :) Excellent choice for the theme.

I'm pretty sure I've never seen a wooden bike! What a great find for the theme day.
