This sculpture depicts a traditional bike race that occurred in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s between Denver and Brighton along a rockriddled roadway. The path roughly follows Old Brighton Road and the Union Pacific right of way. There are three elements of this public art piece - they include a young man riding a penny farthing bicycle, a cheering little girl and a boy carrying a jug of buttermilk.
