From Anquetil to Hampsten; from the Giro to the cobbles of Belgium; cycling has proven itself to be a living, breathing representation of all of the heroics and romanticism found within the annals of great literature. So who better to put to words the fires of two-wheeled passion within us than the poet, the author, the cultural ambassador -- Paul Fournel?
Velo is a collection of short essays, accompanied by whimsical illustrations from Jo Burt, that eloquently recount the internalized passion and thrills of cycling. From the first moments of being upright to the glory of the Tour, Velo takes the reader on a journey through the many facets of cycling, expressing what we all know to be true -- the bike is beautiful, and its freedom is sublime.
