Nissan and the City of Santa Rosa have funded the erection of the 'Cyclisk' bike obelisk as a project through the Art in Public Places Committee. The large-scale monument was built by California artists Ilana Spector and Mark Grieve, weighs 10,000 pounds, stands 65 feet tall and comprises 340 bicycle frames.

The project was a joint effort on the part of the community as a whole, considering all of the bicycles and parts came from citizens and bike co-ops. The 'Cyclisk' bike obelisk fulfills the City of Santa Rosa's "1% for Art" requirement and will stand to commemorate community spirit, and as a monument to protecting the environment.
