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.
