Original Bicycle Print
Famous for its 21 twisting hairpin switchbacks, the climb to Alpe d’Huez from Bourg d’Oisans has been a favorite among cyclists for many years. Making its debut in the 1952 Tour de France, this beast of a climb will continue to test the legs and lungs of tour riders for many years to come.
Paris Nice-Race to the Sun Art Print
“The Race to the Sun”, Paris-Nice the start of the UCI Euro tour, big sprint opportunities for the big boys looking for wins this season.
With a tip of the hat to Endless Summer 60’s poster designer John Van Hamersveld, this is my take on The Race for the Sun. We start cold in Paris, eight days later we’re on the beach in Nice.
This cycling art print comes in three sizes on high quality watercolor paper and will be rolled and shipped to you ready for framing.
