Celebrating the Tour Down Under 2015, “On Yer Bike” will be an eclectic mix of bicycle related artworks which embraces the love of cycling in all its splendour. From child to adult, sport to leisure, professional to pleasure rider, this exhibition is sure to appeal to all whilst sending a message of excitement, energy and enjoyment, and pointing out the benefits to health and the environment.

Covering a range of ideas from sporting to leisure, ethical to excellence and most of all portraying Adelaide’s love affair with cycling, this exhibition includes 2D and 3D works from varying cultures and backgrounds offering a unique view of the bicycle. Adelaide is fast becoming known as one of the world’s most ‘cycling friendly” cities with good cycling policies and infrastructure that provide benefits to their citizens, businesses and visitors. This exhibition reinforces that message.
