My brother Joel just emailed me some fantastic photos from his recent trip to Italy. No, I’m not talking about boring old churches and fountains (yawn), I’m talking of course, about bikes.
Ever since I saw Breaking Away, and reveled in the style and panache of racing greats like Gianni Bugno and Marco Pantani (RIP), Italy has held a magical place in my bikey heart. I think Joel captures some of that magic with these photos.
I invite you to take a tour of Italian city bikes as seen through the eyes of Joel Maus.
