Throwback Thursday to this bicycle art piece by Lady Bird Lake in Austin 🚲 #damarisinc
Naturally I just had to go and see how it all comes apart- yep, totally as complex and intricate as it appeared! Ciao, Forever Bicycles! T'was a good ride. // #aiweiwei #foreverbicycles  #wallercreek #thecontemporaryaustin
unfortunately, this sculpture was closed off by wire fencing and it was raining, but i’ll be back to hopefully get a closer look. 🚲
Goodbye bikes, we’ll miss you.
The end of Forever #aiweiwei #foreverbicycles @contemporaryatx

Shot of the Forever Bicycles before it's removed. Unreal project. In front of this project is my project. When I started working at @motorless_motion at 15, I put together an LX-ish Stumpjumper for myself.  When the front derailleur cage kept jamming on mud I'd cake on mudding thru Mill Pond Park. Dug around in the basement of the shop and found a '91 Deore DX - with a much larger cage. Never had that issue again.  Upgraded the rear and pedals to XT. PURPLE ALLOY rims and hubs with Specialized umma gumma tires. Bike rocked. Being more of a roadie at the time, I slammed and lengthened the stem. An endo in a cornfield by the house threw the bars into the top tube.  I took it to a shop in ATX, a guy looked at me, shamed me with a head shake and said "that looks horrible man. Don't even bother game over".... Except it happened in 1996 and made it this far. I had the shop overhaul it - it's lived in and out if my possession from MI to TX to TN. Stayed in TN as I departed for NV, CO and finally Austin. I made a specific trip to retrieve this. Hadn't been ridden since the early 2000's.  It lives again. It's two wheels and gears. That shit does not go obsolete. It's rolling and it's 90's rad once more.  I usually don't do the typical nostalgic Instagram post, this feels very cliche, so I'd appreciate it if everyone's comments were limited to: "I'm obsessed" "I'm dead" "Yasss" "Reunited and it feels so good" "Sorry not sorry" "That xxx tho" "Take me back..." Only cliche responses if any, people. Gametight please.  #bikeatx
Hurry! It’s going away this week! #artinstallation  #foreverbicyclesaustin
The penultimate Austin view of Forever Bicycles by Ai Weiwei. The fence is not another attempt to silence the artist. Forever Bicycles will soon be en route to its next destination  #contemporaryart #aiweiwei #austin
Take me 🚲 .. get it ? LOL
Participated in Bike to Work day yesterday and was able to see this before it’s taken down!!! 🙂🙃
This was a scary drone flight.
Bikes!
Action shots by the forever bicycles 🚲 ☀️
Imagine my surprise while travelling last week, we rounded a corner, I was stunned to recognize in a park the world travelling  exhibit of famous sculpture, ‘Forever Bicycles’ by artist, Ai Wei Wei, ( swipe to read about him), it does not mention here so much but it should be noted over the years he has created works to raise awareness of the plight of his people at great risk to his life by the oppression of the Chinese government.  Years ago a  client introduced me to his art, his stance as advocate of human rights. Finally, in person  I am standing ( literally  that’s me) in awe of the perpetual cycles of life and art! * ✨ * * #foreverbicycles #aiweiweiawesomeness #contemporaryatx #wallercreek #scenesofaustin #adventuretravelcouple #peacefullwalk #sightsofart #bicycleartwork #artinapark
• hey. it’s bike month •
谢谢再见
[insert clever joke about how naming this (soon to be dismantled) sculpture "forever bicycles" must've been ironic]
🚲 Today was the last day for the Forever Bicycles sculpture at Waller Creek. Glad I got to see it in person last month ‘cause pictures do not do it justice. . #aiweiwei #foreverbicycles #wallercreek #austin #365thingsaustin #bicycles #artsculpture #shotoniphone
I love how Ai Weiwei’s bikes look like they’re in motion when the sun hits them.
They got this cool mass of bikes by Ai Weiwei here which is pretty cool
Sourire 😌💖

Contemplating Weiwei. Forever Bicycles, 2014.  Goodbye, it was fantastic hosting you.
Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool just taking some drone shots outside of school ✌️ 🚲
Everything changes; nothing stays the same. Goodbye #foreverbicycles I will miss you.
I’m bummed that this #magnificent #art display will be leaving Austin tomorrow but am grateful to have seen it in all its #majesty while we could! #kuwtc5 #latergram #austintx #austinart #foreverbicycles

‘Forever bicycles’ by Ai Weiwei
Evening stroll to see @aiww ‘Forever Bicycles’ before it leaves Austin. I’m so glad Austin is bringing incredible global art into this city for all to enjoy @contemporaryatx. When I first moved to Austin in 2010 from the UK I felt like the art scene had a lot of catching up to do, with growth comes the good, the bad and the ugly but I couldn’t be happier to see available arts expanding here. Art and culture will always make a city richer to me..it provides an energetic expansion and extension of horizons, community and possibility. It sure helped a northern girl like me dream big. : :  #citygrowth #lovemesome #artattack #foodforthought #artsandculture #aiweiwei #foreverbicycles #foreverlove #quietcontemplation #art #contemporaryaustin #austintexas #growth #theimportanceofart
Laura Davidson makes a photo with her phone of Ai Weiwei's work of public art, "Forever Bicycles,” near the Waller Creek delta on Wednesday, May 15, 2019, in Austin. Davidson said she made it a point to visit the artwork after hearing it would be leaving the city. “Forever Bicycles” is made up of 1,200 bicycles and will ride out of Austin forever beginning tomorrow, as the “de-install begins May 16," said Waller Creek Conservancy spokeswoman Meredith Bossin. Ai Weiwei’s artwork was brought to Austin in the summer of 2017 thanks in large part to a $1.1 million grant from the Edward and Betty Marcus Foundation.

I knew this art installation was leaving soon, so I made my way out there earlier this week to finally see what all the fuss was about. Definitely on team #foreverbicycles 🚲
Finally took the time to go see the @aiww #foreverbicycles installation....the day before it’s taken down to move to a new home #urbanart
They see me rollin’, they hatin’. Bikes be cool. #austin
I believe today is the last day to snap photos of tourists posing in front of Forever Bicycles.
