So it’s real – I love Cycling. The funny thing is, I do don’t it. At least, not yet. My friend has been a cyclist for over 30 years, this is the reason why it’s such an important part in my life.
He was a professional in Europe for a while, and races as a master (45+ age) now, so I go to all his races and watch we’re always on the television. I even drive ALL the things, but I haven’t started – which is coming soon (yikes!).
So now we’re just the Pro Tour, and in July the Tour de France . . . so, that motivated me to do some bike art.
It’s a simple project with fun results, and if you love Cycling, this is a smashing look in your home. Fit you want to each color, and scrapbook paper. Here’s how it was made.
