Pedal Powering

Bikes are symbols freedom, independence, progress, and forward movement. In dreams and in this colorful mural, bicycles are symbolic of the self. In Pedal Powering, bikes of many design styles ride together towards the sunrise into a beautiful new day dawning, a day full of vibrant color, faceted gemstone wheels of fortune in amethyst and citrine, flourishing leaves, red hearts, and monarch butterflies. These vibrant images flow together, moving towards a progressive and prospering pedal-powered future.
