Seven in the Series. Winter cycling for me is all about slowing down and embracing the world around me. Much of which is covered in snow or frozen still. I ride in the open landscapes of the midwestern states north of Chicago on the Wisconsin line. Filled with farms at rest and wooded trails I’m grateful for the times I can get outside.
This series was created by dragging paint across the paper without a brush and then pen and ink details.

This art was originally created to help raise funds for Midwest Bike Share program, a not-for-profit organization bringing an inexpensive bike sharing program to the greater Milwaukee area.
The idea behind the image was inspired by the name, Bike Share. One of Michael’s very first concept sketches for this project turned out to be the winning design. A group of diverse bicycle riders all sharing one bike. Sometimes the most simple idea is the best one.
This bicycle art print is printed with a white border which sets it off for framing.

Made famous in many Tour de France stages, the legendary Col du Tourmalet puts riders to the test year after year. As part of Stage 18, racing from Pau to Hautacam, this 145 kilometer stage turns violently upward 95 kilometers into the day. The Col is where true climbers and GC contenders have their final opportunity in the mountains to claim victory in Paris.
Michael’s Col du Tourmalet bicycle print celebrates the famous 2115 meter hors catégorie climb with old school style and grace. As our rider ascends into the clouds, we can only wonder what this grueling road must be like in the heat of competition.
Every September UCI Pro Cyclists race around the beautiful country of Spain for three weeks. Inspired by the success of the Tour de France and Giro d’Italia, the Vuelta a España (Tour of Spain) is one of the most challenging stage races on the cycling calendar.
In this image we see the cyclist as matador playing the bull as the roses fall from the sky. The red cape of the matador matches the red jersey of the Vuelta leader.
The famed climb to the summit of Mont Ventoux has been a part of the Tour de France since the beginning, and featured again in 2013 for the 100th edition of the race. Known as the infamous “Moonscape,” Michael’s cycling poster commemorated the return of the classic climb to the centennial edition of the tour.
