Love Your Bike? Turn It Into Art!

Do you love your bike? Do you really, really love your bike? Let the love show by capturing it in art!

Get your own original sketch of your bike (or the one belonging to someone special) when you donate $100 or more. Donations to Washington Bikes, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, are tax-deductible.

Seattle artist and long-time member Andy Goulding has made a standing offer to anyone who donates $100 or more to WA Bikes. Working from a photo of your bike (or the bike of the bicycling friend or loved one you’re going to surprise with a truly original gift), he’ll create an original sketch and send it to you as a JPEG to use however you like it.

Screen it on a shirt, frame it to hang on your wall, blow it up to mural size, print it on your business card, buy a billboard. . . . Well, okay, we’re getting a little carried away.

Tandem? Folding? No matter your bike style, Andy Goulding can capture it as original artwork. Sketches on display in our Pioneer Square store at 314 1st Ave. S., Seattle 

Some of Andy’s sketches are shown here, along with the surprise Louise McGrody in our office got from her partner Steve. He printed the sketch onto an unusual background to make it extra-special.

The sky’s the limit to what you can do with a JPEG of your original bike sketch. Here’s what Steve did for Louise’s birthday present.
