With scales that shimmer, like wheels in motion
The dragon takes to the road with fierce devotion
Its wings beat fast, like pedals that turn
As it races along, with a fiery burn
The road stretches out before its eyes
Like a dragon's tail that twists and winds
Through mountains and valleys, it takes the lead
A majestic sight for all to heed
And with each mile, the dragon gains speed
Like a champion cyclist with strength and creed
It pushes ahead to reach the end
A true dragon rider, a legend to defend.

This artwork illustrates Asia dragon can be likened to a cyclist, both embodying strength, agility, and a sense of awe-inspiring power. Whether flying through the air or racing along a winding road, both the dragon and the cyclist are truly a sight to behold.

The figure of each cyclist is created using a single, continuous brush stroke, similar to the one-stroke technique used in Chinese calligraphy which moves with the same fluidity and grace as dragons. Adapting to changes in terrain and shifting seamlessly from one gear to the next.
