This print was commissioned by the Carten 100 Team to raise funds with an obvious connection in the rider with the tail and eye of the Welsh Dragon.
CARTEN100 is not a race, but a fun day out with more experienced riders helping and encouraging those who have less experience and confidence. Each year, riders return fitter and keener and on newer, better bikes but they bring their friends, family and work colleagues with them to enjoy the challenge.
From the outset of CARTEN100 the two main objectives of this fun cycle are to set an achievable challenge for novice riders to encourage them to become fit and enjoy cycling, and to raise money for good causes – almost ‘half a million pounds’ raised so far!
The Alpes are always a part of the Tour de France. With many stages over the years passing through or starting in Briançon as a part of the Route des Grandes Alpes (Great Alpine Road). And the famous Col d’Izoard has hosted many dramatic finishes.
This Cycling Art Print | Alpes is just one of the many iconic places that shares a rich history with cycling.
