Recycled Christmas Tree: The Tree Cycle

This Christmas Tree, composed of 100 bicycles stands in The Rocks shopping center in Sydney, Australia. The bikes were donated by a recycling yard, and the frames were painted green. They painted the wheels an array of colors to mimic lights and ornaments. The "Tree Cycle" is 28 feet tall and took eight weeks to construct.
