Steen’s Track Bike

Artwork Description

My bike had been shipped off to France to be repainted in Canadian colours, so in the meantime Steen Madsen (my coach, training partner, and friend) lent me one of his bikes.  I wanted to capture a different perspective of a track bike but I still wanted to make it recognizable to everyone.

A track bicycle is different from a road or a mountain bike:  it has no brakes, only one gear (so you can not stop pedaling and coast!), and you have toe straps which “lock” you into your pedals making it almost impossible to come out of when training or racing.
