Belgium to Italy by bike is roughly 1200km. That makes an average of 120km per day, for 10 days across hills and landscapes, including 3 essential climbs en route:
The Bizarr Cyclists from Nijlen, Belgium undertook this admirable adventure with a group of 18 keen riders over the summer. We felt this kind of effort was worthy of a bespoke print for their big challenge. Plus, apart from the great memories they gather along the way, a Glower t-shirt would be a fantastic reminder that can last them a long time.
The final destination of the trip was Madonna del Ghisallo, the shrine on top of the hill close to Lake Como in Italy, that also features a small cycling museum with photos and artefacts of the sport as well as an eternal flame for the cyclists who have died.
Inspired by their efforts, we created a design for them that named the 3 main climbs and carried the name of the trip. For the bike adventure they were undertaking, we felt this sunset mood and the message behind the design were perfectly suited. We blended 3 colours on the screen to create a nice, soft mix, with each t-shirt looking a bit different because it's all done by hand.
This designs is a customised version of our Balloon de Cycliste design available in different styles and colours in our shop.
The proud athletes were so kind to share pictures from their impressive adventure with us, showing off their Glower t-shirts united as a group.
