The Santa Clarita City Council is inviting the community to attend the Santa Clarita Cycling Bear unveiling dedication on Friday, May 18, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. located on the Chuck Pontius Commuter-Rail Trail adjacent to Valencia Boulevard (near the AMPM station on 23106 Valencia Boulevard.
The Santa Clarita Cycling Bear was painted by artist Frank Rock. The theme was inspired by the Amgen Tour of California (ATOC), a prestigious cycling event which the City has hosted a record thirteen times. The public art piece is part of the California Bear Project, a project developed in August 2004 by the City of Santa Clarita to install-life size grizzly bear sculptures throughout the community. Each bear replica measures over 10 feet in length and is over five feet tall, and represents different Santa Clarita themes.
The Santa Clarita Cycling Bear is the sixth bear sculpture to be displayed in the community. Other bear sculptures on display throughout the City include the Santa Clarita Transit Center, Valencia Heritage Park, The Patios at Valencia Town Center, Old Town Newhall Library and at Golden Valley High School.
