Before hitting up F.A.S.T. you can see a magnificent sample of Sparta’s fiberglass art in action in the World’s Largest Bicyclist at the entrance to the town. The Bicycle Man of Sparta aka “Ben Bikin” aka “Big Ben” stands at 32-feet tall and depicts a man riding an old-fashioned high-wheeler Victorian bicycle. Installed at his base is a speaker box that gives visitors an audio history of Sparta. He symbolized the town’s claim as the Bicycling Capital of America.
