Borderland artists who created some of the most beloved murals in Segundo Barrio were invited to paint a bicycle resembling their original mural in the historic neighborhood as part of the SunCycle Bike Share program.

The Camino Real Regional Mobility Authority program was awarded a $4,300 mini-grant from the PeopleForBikes Foundation/Better Bike Share Partnership for the project. The bicycles were unveiled on Thursday, Sept. 16 at Sacred Heart Church, 602 S. Oregon, after the artists and members of the media took a ride from the Arts District to Segundo Barrio.

The murals being celebrated with a bicycle are “Quinto Soul, The Rebirth” by Bobby Lerma; “Contigo/With You” by Christin Apodaca; “Caution: Children Crossing,” by Victor Mask Casas; “Barrio Soul” by Jesus “Cimi” Alvarado; “Sister Cities/Ciudades Hermanas,” by Los Dos; “Para Nosotros” (For Us) by Martin “Blaster” Zubia; and “Sagrado Corazón” by Francisco Delgado.
