The Bicycle is a larger-than-life sculpture of a bicycle and is perhaps the most famous landmark in Jeddah. It sits in the center of a busy intersection in a popular shopping district. At night, it is lit by flood lights, the color of which is changed frequently. The Bicycle was made from scrap metals, stands 15 meters high, and was the work of Spanish artist Julio Lafuente. Notice the “golden arches” nearby. My husband thinks that The Bicycle is listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest bicycle in the world.
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby and teenage son. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE, which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
