10 amazing works of street art dedicated the beauty of bicycles

Street art has never been more alive popular, thanks to the likes of U.K. artist Banksy. It might not be as edgy as it once was in the ’80s when graffiti was part of the burgeoning hip hop music scene, but what it lacks in illegality it makes up for in the scope of the works.

Street art often incorporates issues of social justice, and revolution; and we all know and love the current two-wheeled revolution that is transforming city streets around the world. To that end, we’ve plucked out favourite 10 works of bicycle street art.
