Happy Hoops by Luke Jones and David Thompson

The winner of the Byron Bike Rack Project has been announced. The competition asked northern rivers residents to design sculptural bike racks for the town of Byron.

Twenty-three entries were initially shortlisted to six entries by a committee from the Byron Shire Public Art Panel. On 8 March the final round of judging took place with a second round of judges, a hand-selected group of talented northern rivers residents who collectively were from environmental, design, creative and engineering industries.

The winning entrant will be funded $20,000 to bring their ideas to life. This means that Happy Hoops will be produced over April, and should be seen around town in May and June this year. The whole point of the idea is to encourage locals and visitors to Byron make the most of the wonderful climate and relatively flat environment of Byron to ride, rather than drive, and aims to create a set of functional, public art installations that you can park your bike in.

The initiative is supported by local independent brewery Stone & Wood, working with Council.

The winning entry was Happy Hoops (see page 7 of this paper).
