ReInvent the Wheel2018-04-28T14:33:16-05:00

Ashland Main Street Association will celebrate our town’s cycling culture with a public art contest May 19-25, 2018.

You can join the fun in each of three ways…

Use a bicycle to create art or a garden, and display it in the Town of Ashland. The art may be renovated or newly created.

All residents and visitors are encouraged to vote in the contest! Just snap a photo of your favorite bike art and post it to
Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter using the hashtag #BikeAshlandVA. Votes will be tallied from midnight May 19 to
midnight May 25.

Winners will receive a $100 Ashland Gift Certificate presented at the “Ashland Ticket to Ride” bike/run/walk event May 27.


Ashland, Virginia won acclaim in 2015 when local merchants, residents, and organizations created public art throughout town using bicycles. The effort, dubbed Bikes at the Center of the Universe, was led by Ashland Main Street Association to promote the town as a cycling destination.
Reinvent the Wheel public art contest provides the perfect opportunity to revamp the successful campaign for 2018. We encourage new entries and renovations by past participants!
