Odd bicycle draws stares in Ann Arbor

Jul 4, 2012

A big, red circular bicycle has been drawing stares on the streets of Ann Arbor. It's a seven-seat "conference bike" driven by Tom Bartlett.

Artist Eric Staller created this mobile piece of art in Amsterdam and sold it to Bartlett four years ago.

Michigan Radio intern Julia Smith-Eppsteiner went for a ride on the bike and produced this audio postcard.
