    If you like bicycles, you'll love this statue. This huge Egyptian-style obelisk structure is aptly named, "The Cyclisk," and is made entirely of recycled bicycles.


    The giant ode to bicycles was created by artists Mark Grieve and Ilana Spector, who said collecting the bicycles for the piece saved garbage from entering the city landfill while providing beautiful art to the city of Santa Rosa, CA.

    Congratulations, Matt Prokosch. We've chosen your night shot titled "Home Row," as the winner of this week's Share Your Adventure Photo Contest!
    Matt's photo was taken at Philmont Scout Ranch, in Cimarron, NM. "I was walking around the ranch one night and I noticed that this line of tents all had lights on at the same time," Mat told us. "I found a fence post to rest my camera on and took a 6-second exposure."
