Geoff has almost completed the biker portion of his mural by Market Wharf in St. Andrews. The couple on the motorcycle are the very first couple who registered for Atlanticade. Since the bike festival is taking place in St. Andrews this year, the organizers thought it would be a nice gift for the couple to see their faces (and bike) painted on a mural.
