to celebrate the 100th edition of the tour de france, romain bourdieux and thomas pomarelle of cyclemon decided to pay tribute to all those who, like them, share a passion for the sport. ‘you are what you ride’ associates different bicycles with stereotypes of people as the designs make a caricatural topology of bike users.
