This April and May, Bear Bicycles (a company selling Dutch bikes and delivery bikes in Dublin: www.bear-bicycles.com) will organise a bicycle exhibition at Gallery Number One (www.gallerynumberone.com). The exhibition will mark the beginning of Bear's 'Cycle the Seasons' campaign, in which Bear introduces a unique bicycle for spring, summer, autumn and winter.
The bicycle exhibition focuses on bicycle lifestyle, and showcases bicycle products, bicycle films, and bicycle art by Matthew Knight - a diverse Irish artist, influenced by Celtic, Aboriginal, Street, and Lowbrow art. According to Bear, the Irish bicycle lifestyle is similar to the Dutch bicycle lifestyle; more than most think. However, Bear observes one big difference: Irish see cycling predominantly as spring and summer activity. In the Netherlands, cycling is for all seasons. Bear sees no reason why winter and autumn would be unfit for cycling in Ireland.
