i may be alone here, but being married to a professional cyclist means one thing- july = the tour de france. it’s about the only sport we watch for the entire year, so i enjoy it and try to make it my own. i love seeing the beautiful scenery and photographs each year, and especially love that the handmade community is picking up on it!

tour de france

we don’t watch football at our house. in fact, you won’t find us watching baseball, basketball or soccer either. what?! instead, you’ll find us tuning in to the tour de france each summer, and the 2011 tour started just last week. most of you know my husband is an elite cyclist, a cycling coach and used to own a bike shop. needless to say, he’ll be glued to the television for the next few weeks. it’s a good think i enjoy it as well, as the racers and announcers remind of the time when we first started dating. we’ve watched the tour together now for 8 years, and i’m sure it will be a life long tradition. are you tuning in?

clockwise: bicycle glasses- $75, france love- $20, fixie bicycle- $20, bike bell- $16, bike gear dock- $50, bike lovers trinket box- $45, yellow bicycle- $12, couple on bikes- $70

i love-love these posters from poster caberet! founded in 2002 to help support and sell underground gig posters, it has now grown to include many of the top artists of the underground poster and print scene. the ones i’ve chosen seem to have an organic-folksy-feel, but the selection is endless and absolutely full of inspiration. owned by an avid cyclist, i couldn’t help but be drawn to several of the cycling-inspired prints, i bet my mister would love these!
