Grayson Perry Goes Biking!

Bikes People

Looking like something that might have been ridden by Penelope Pitstop gone bike crazy crossed with Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, the nine-and-a-half foot long bike commissioned by artist Grayson Perry is a sight to behold.

And it was on this highly modded ‘Kenilworth AM1 that the controversial Turner Prize winning artist recently took his childhood teddy bear ‘Alan Measles’ on a tour of the Europe of his child’s imagaination – via the Nordschleif of the ‘ring of course.

Whether or not you dig Grayson’s vaguely ironic brand of art – you’ve got to admire the man’s neck.
