Bicycle Bathroom Vanity?

Now here’s a REAL ArtRide!!

Check out this bicycle repurposed for a bathroom by artist Benjamin Bullins– his site is here. Not sure what the material is for the countertop, but concrete would be cool, too. You could add a pannier for more storage!

Speaking of ArtRides, some say they will be doing First Friday in Ventura January 6; we’re planning on heading up to Santa Barbara January 5 for Bike Moves–the theme is “Night of the Riding Dead.”

Santa Barbara Bike Moves Theme: Lord of the Chain Rings Th. 11/3/11

Santa Barbara Bike Moves writes:

“Cyclists of Middle Earth,

On November 3rd of the year two-thousand eleven come gather at the Hobbit Wheelhouse. From there we will embark on an epic journey through Middle Earth down to the Pier of Orodruin where we will battle the Dark Lord Sauron in a game of sumo. Will good triumph over evil?

And for those that want to strut the costume early and enjoy a little time on the water, come out for an awesome joint party with Bike Moves and Paddle Sports Halloween weekend for a noon paddle departing from the harbor to benefit “Save the Mermaids“. ”

I wish I could be there!
