Salt Lake City is sporting a new mural highlighting local bikeways.

The artwork at 750 S. State on the wall of Crank SLC bike shop — started in the fall but halted by weather — nears completion with muralist Chris Peterson putting finishing touches Thursday on the 54-by-20-foot perspective map.

The mural includes city landmarks, downtown, Wasatch skylines and 9-Line Trail, along with the Jordan River Parkway and Bonneville Shoreline trails.

Peterson said the map is "meant to provide a bicycle-oriented perspective" on the capital's landscape, which he calls "amazing."

The project was made possible through support and collaboration with Crank SLC owners Christian Clemens and Juliet Lalouel, Bike Utah, and multimedia artist Patrick Clifford. The project also received support from the Utah Division of Arts and Museums' "Random Acts of Art" grant program.
