Batty Biker

Batty Biker is a whimsical sculpture of an Arizona bat riding a recumbent bicycle. The site is on the Loop bicycle trail, next to the Broadway Blvd. Bridge where bats roost. It marks the site where people can come to see where the bats fly out at dusk and return at dawn. Batty Biker can be seen from Broadway and is a placemaker for the viewing area.

Artist(s): Stephen Fairfield

Artist Stephen Fairfield plays with the whimsical in his steel sculpture, Batty Biker. Located along the Loop bicycle trail, Fairfield's work sits at the site where folks notoriously gather to watch bats mingle during dawn and dusk. Fairfield worked with welded steel pipe, rod, and perforated metal to construct the expressionistic recumbent bike and bat due!
