M.C. Escher meets Lance Armstrong for the Bio-Cycle

bio-cycle_2-2008_01.jpg

This sepulchral Bio-Cycle was made by metalworker Jud Turner. There’s some questions on how a gothic bicyclist would actually ride this thing: I suggest digging your thumbs into the empty eye sockets while straddling the coccyx.

    I’ll take one. I have a few ‘friends’ that are concerned enough with image that the threat of vertebrae in the nads won’t concern them.

    Less Escher, more Geiger.

    Anyway, I doubt it’s functional as a bike, but it’d be awesome if someone tried that. I’d also be less concerned with steering than getting a stray vertebrae in the crotch.

    Yeah… I think you meant Giger. Don’t see anything about this that makes me think of Escher.
