The 31st El Tour de Tucson, the internationally acclaimed bike race, was held yesterday. Thousands of participants (including a 91-year-old first timer!) hit the streets and pedaled for charity.
In honor of the race's participants I'm posting this image of Tucson's famous Bike Church. It is a shrine to bicyclists and a memorial to fallen bicyclists. The unusual structure is 24' tall and is made primarily of bicycle parts. The colorful acrylic panels glow at night from solar lighting. Blessing Hancock of Skyrim Studio and Joe O'Connell, the talented sculptor of Creative Machines, built this with the help of local teens. (Note: Joe also created the fantastic Griffin sculpture on Scott Avenue.)
The Bike Church is on Main near Davis.

Click here to see the photo from 2010. I thought the new mural was really fun and it reminds me of the beautiful babes that were painted on planes in WWII. She is definitely a pin up girl! Then I read in the local news that the owner of this place refused to pay the artist, Darah L Sueme, for her work. She had to threaten to paint over it to get paid. Happily, he paid the artist for her work and this babe stays. She does certainly perk up Pima Street!
