Bicycle Art in Carson City, NV?

Yes, it's true!

I noticed a bicycle mural on the back side of a Podiatrist's Office in Carson City about a month ago while driving through town. I have lived in the area for most of my life and never noticed it. So for all you experts on Carson City, I have some questions for you.

How long has this been here? Why are there bicycles and what looks like a Golden Gate bridge? Who did it? What was there inspiration?

One guess..... A bike race in San Francisco?

Any thoughts?

Here's an article from the RN&R pre-mural. Looks to be the work of Erik Burke and others. The guy on the three wheeled bike is Glenn Lucky as you suspected...
