The USA Pro Cycling Challenge ushers in second year of bike art installation

When it comes to art and bicycles, Ivar Zeile knows how to keep the wheels turning. The owner of Plus Gallery, Zeile -- who was in charge of curating last year's inaugural USA Pro Cycling Challenge bike art installation -- is taking the project for another spin, as Colorado again plays host to the international bicycle race.

This Wednesday, the thirteen finished art bicycles will make an appearance at PlatteForum, before they move on to Denver International Airport for an installation that will greet visitors in August.
