New art celebrates historic Redlands event

Partial image of sculpture, Peloton Takes the Classic Curve

A 26-foot tall steel sculpture left a little town near Camp Pendleton in the fog and dark of night to arrive at the corner of Garden Street and Rossmont Drive as the sun rose Tuesday morning over Redlands.

City crews were waiting in a corner of a small park called Simond’s Parkway to install and hide the art.

“Peloton Takes the Classic Curve” was created by artist Kathleen King-Page to honor the historic and worldwide presence of the Redlands Bicycle Classic, which kicks off its 37th year April 12.
