“Mountains mean a lot to all cyclists. We can feel a bit in awe of them. I wanted to see if I could somehow illustrate the feeling and show the whole mountain at the time I climbed them,” says architect-artist Tim O’Rourke. “I’ve ridden the Iseran 15 times, it’s a joyful climb. It’s bright, the air’s clean and fresh, with some perfect corners near Val d’Isere. The top is more rocky and barren, with snow, ice, and glacial water.”
Tim O'Rourke's depiction of the Col de L'Iseran is one of 21 stories in Rouleur's Tour de France special issue. For more, including limited edition Giclee prints by the London based architect, visit www.roadart.cc

Featured in issue 18.2 of Rouleur, London design studio Conductor pay tribute to the master of the cobbles - Roger De Vlaeminck with this modern, clean A2 art print.
Cleverly, negative space has been used to form one of Roubaix's cobbles which De Vlaeminck would have tamed in his legendary four wins of Paris-Roubaix. Colours reference those of the Brooklyn Dreher team De Vlaeminck rode for in all of his Hell of the North victories.Learn More

Paolo Martelli captures this wonderful landscape, for stage 12 of 21 in issue 19.4 of Rouleur, ironically a piece on littering in the high mountains.Learn More
The Roubaix showers by Michael Blann; world renowned photographer, famous in the cycling world for Mountains, the culmination of a body of work depicting cycling’s greatest and most iconic climbs.
"To the passing observer, the Roubaix shower block which is located in a shabby municipal building adjacent to the Roubaix Velodrome would probably bring back bad memories of school PE classes and cold showers. To the informed racing cyclist these represent hallowed ground. After all this is where every great cyclist that has fought their way over the cobbled farm tracks of northern France in seek of victory in Paris-Roubaix has found themselves, post race, washing off the mud and grime in this brutalist concrete shower block."Learn More
