We ride elbow to elbow,
wheel to wheel,
taking turns to shield and be shielded
from the wind.
We ride so closely to one another
that there is no room for misjudgement.
We begin to react instinctively,
flowing as one,
as if we are part of the same body.
Knowing all the time
that only one of us can be the first
to cross the finishing line.
Are we competitors or comrades?
In the peloton, it’s complicated.

A peloton is simply a group of cyclists riding together in a race, but things are never as simple as it looks. The number of cyclists can go up to the hundreds. Like a large living organism, the peloton evolves as it moves. Its formation changes according to race strategy and physical conditions – the track, the terrain, the wind, especially the wind – with the aim of moving the pack forward as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Inspired by the physics of ink flowing with gravity, this artwork overlaps 3 High-Intensity Fluorescent Pantone Colours to create many more brilliant shades which represent cyclists overlapping one another in a peloton.

As an avid cyclist, I decided to combine two of my passions – bicycles and art – into 100copies. All of the products you see here are limited to, as the name suggests, 100 copies. All of the products you see here are limited to, as the name suggests, 100 copies. Each piece of work will be watermarked, labeled with the title and edition number. As such, no two copies are ever completely identical.
