Comment: This is no indication of the sculptor on the plaque. An early press cutting showed a computer generated image of how the sculpture might look. This was before a sculptor was chosen. The final piece looks very similar to that in press cutting.
On site plaque: A metal plaque beneath the sculpture states:
'The Millennium Cyclist /
