New bike lane stencil by Joe Biel

Posted by on December 13th, 2005 at 1:39 pm


Some of you may remember that Joe Biel (founder of Microcosm Publishing) is working on a documentary about bike art. He was particularly interested in Portland’s whimsical bike lane characters.

I just heard from Joe that after a few meetings and phone calls he was given the opportunity to design and lay out his very own bike lane character. So here it is, courtesy of Joe Biel. It lives on NE 33rd, just past the Columbia Slough (by the DEQ).

To see more of Portland’s bike lane stencils, check out these photos.

I also heard that Alex Wrekk had something to do with this bike stencil!


There’s a bike lane stencil group on flickr:

Alex was also present for the shoot and took the photo.
