What's Cool In Road Cycling

The Hour by The Handmade Cyclist

The purest test of a rider and machine, the hardest ride of them all.

The story of The Hour is one of drama and intrigue disproportionate to the simplicity of the challenge. From the great Eddy Merckx’s shattering of the record in 1972 to Bradley Wiggins’s awesome fusion of fitness and technology in 2015, this series of prints illustrates the great and sometimes controversial record-breaking rides that defined their eras.

The Hour strips aside every outside influence on the rider. One rider, on the track. No wind, no hills, no drafting. Just the rider and the bike. The man-machine.

A set of five giclee prints, printed with archival ink on gallery-grade paper. Available from https://thehandmadecyclist.com/collections/the-hour, priced from £30 per print.
