Happy Campers

Thanks to one of our readers, we've made the acquaintance of this Camper Bicycle. It's the work of the artist Kevin Cyr.

"Camper Bike, a functioning sculptural piece, built in April 2008. A stand alone piece and the subject of a series of paintings."

Brilliant stuff. And why not? After I read about it I figured I'd google 'camper bike' to see if anything else was out there apart from an artist's sculptural piece. I shouldn't have done it... here goes:

Or we can go old school with a classic European delivery bike. When I was visiting Amsterdam back in May, I needed a nap after riding around with Marc from Amsterdamize [hungover - had to teach him a Danish drinking lesson] so what better than Henry's big delivery bicycle outside of his Workcycles Shop. Wouldn't take much to slap a cover over the top or even just pitch a tent right on the cargo bay.

These big-arse cargo bikes were a main feature on the streets of Copenhagen and Amsterdam in the first half of the last century. Back when bicycle messengers were men. :-)
