Vélo

£21.00

Paul Fournel

Vélo is a unique look at the bike. Through a series of short essays, Paul Fournel beautifully evokes the experience and spirit of all aspects of cycling - from the glorious moment of first learning to stay upright on two wheels to the joy of riding with friends; from the delight of on days to the hell of off days; from the Tour de France to tours of landscapes discovered while out riding. Accompanied by illustrations from Jo Burt, these pieces are the story of a love affair not just with the bike, but with everything it represents.
