Artists, families and creative folks of all kinds: Use our excess bike parts to create beautiful and whimsical artwork.

The Rules
Register by Oct. 3. The $10 fee goes towards prizes and covering our costs.
Pickup parts at the shop. Bike parts and doo-dads galore will be available for pickup in Everett Oct. 6-10 (we’ll send details).
Be creative. Use only bike stuff or add other upcycled materials. Have fun.

Prizes. We’ll do a poll for People’s Choice awards, and also award a $200 Sharing Wheels gift certificate by random drawing from all participants.

Last year’s winning entry from Diana Halar.

We hope to have many entries this year, and several categories for our “people’s choice” awards:

Art that Moves
Wearable or Usable Art
Top Family / Group Effort
Last year’s first place winner was Diana Halar, who made a table out of salvaged wood, bike tires and bike rims with a lighted mosaic of a bicycle using bike chains for the tires.
