As a keen cycle racer and fan one of my favourite professional races of the year is The Tour Of Flanders or ‘De Ronde Van Vlaanderen’ so I decided to do a poster as homage to this great event.

Winter ride

December 22, 2014  by Ben  |  Blog

To the cyclists – It’s at this time of year that the road cycling world really slows down. Less races, unless Cyclocross is your thing (and it should be!) Long, cold rides on icy roads. Getting the miles in through rain ,snow and everything in between. Salt getting into all the expensive bits of your bike grinding them away to dust. I miss it.

This year for the second year running I’m in Pakistan. The winters here In Islamabad aren’t particularly harsh. the rainy season has past, crisp fresh sunshine filled days await.

Anyway this illustration is my ‘rose tinted’ view of cycling back home over winter.

Remember. Enjoy! Appreciate the darkest moments, the pain, the suffering, that’s what’s going to make this summer your best season yet!
