Nike X LIVESTRONG - STAGES Art Exhibition - Artists Bikes At The Armory

During Lance Armstrong’s return to the competitive cycling scene this year at the Tour de France, Armstrong rode a series of specially designed Artist TREK Bikes. The six bicycles were created by Marc Newson, Yoshitomo Nara, Kenny Scharf, KAWS, Damien Hirst and Shepard Fairey.

The bikes first debuted in a special preview not too long ago on Oct 2, also the day when Armstrong was diagnosed with cancer years ago.

On Oct 2, a special dinner was held by Armstrong and Mr. Thompson to commemorate the day at the Park Avenue Armory. The uniquely designed bicycles will be on display until Oct 22, after which they will be auctioned off by Sotheby’s on Nov 1 to raise funds for the Lance Armstrong Foundation.
Do visit the bikes and get a glimpse of the rides in person before they are ushered off to be auctioned for a wonderful cause.
