Unfortunately this installation had some problems and it had to be closed for most of the week, becoming a static piece.­.­

Mayan TRIcycle Crew Captain Atagirl wrote: The reason we closed the TRIke was because the wood was drier than anticipated after being in the desert for a week prior to the opening of the event and it was splinting off as the TRIke spun around.­ We wanted more citizens to have an opportunity to see the TRIke in action and possibly ride on it, especially our donors who helped to fund the project.­ Thus, we reopened it on Friday.­ We estimate we had approximately 3,000 citizens "take a ride" on the TRIke over the three days it was open.­
