Gifts for cyclists, cycling photography prints. Cycling Art.
The top few kilometres of the Col d'Izoard, known as the Casse Déserte, has formed a dramatic backdrop to some key moments in the Tour de France. The Col d'Izoard often features in iconic 1950s black-and-white photos of the race, which are the inspiration for this set of pictures.
Several of the Tour de France's more memorable moments have occurred on the Col d'Izoard, particularly the exploits of Fausto Coppi, Bernard Thévenet and Louison Bobet. A small cycling museum is at the summit, along with a memorial to Coppi and Bobet.
For the cyclist in your life
It's important to remember when buying gifts for cyclists they're fanatics. It comes with the territorial. Don't expect them to be normal. To them, cycling 27km. up a mountain for no apparent reason is normal, they do it to stay normal, at least on the outside.
They do it for the challenge, they do it because they can, for the thrill of it, for the buzz. They do it for the incredible sense of elation that comes with being in the middle of a landscape so impressive it takes your breath away. To know without a shadow of a doubt that this is a good day, a great day, a day that counts. Who doesn’t want that in their life?
