Music City is full of talent. We wanted our bikes to reflect that talent and creativity back into community, so we partnered with the Arts & Business Council of Greater Nashville to connect with local artists for city-inspired art for our fleet of pedal-assist e-bikes. We hope the bikes catch your eye, give you a sense of pride, and motivate you to enjoy a fun bike ride!
The latest art bikes, designed by Caitlin Mello, Arash Shoushtari, and Aaron Grayum, will be unveiled at our community event on October 22 at the Edgehill Library. Afterward the art bikes will be displayed at library branches and before joining the bikeshare fleet.
This is part of our Art, Books, and Bikes for All project, in partnership with Nashville Public Library, Arts & Business Council – Nashville, and the Music City Dope Pedalers, supported by a Better Bikeshare Partnership Mini-grant. The project has allowed us to prioritize community access and engagement by expanding the Books & Bike for All program with free BCycle passes to all 21 library branches, sharing 10 bike routes, and new Art Bikes designed by 3 local artists.
