Kevin Cyr's camper bike in Beijing

Kevin Cyr's camper bike in Beijing

 

Brooklyn-based Artist Kevin Cyr has designed this unique carry-your-own RV, according to Budget Travel. It began as a two-dimensional work of art — the bulk of Cyr’s works depict (or use as canvases) run-down buses, ice cream trucks and hoopties of all sorts — but this one actually came to life, so to speak, in 2008, when Cyr constructed a prototype version of a functional bike-drawn camper in Beijing, China. The artist hasn’t taken the bike beyond Beijing’s outskirts himself. Details and other specifications of the unique RV– including how to balance the unit — were not available. For a look at more of Cyr’s work visit the Alden Gallery in Provincetown, Mass.; a new show opens Aug. 21.
