The Brave Cyclist

The Giro d’Italia continues to fascinate and excite the world. #GinoBartali won that race in 1936. As a frail boy, he had to work extremely hard to reach this achievement. Being poor, he had to take part time jobs to buy a bike and make a few lira. Here’s a sneak peek at an illustration from my book, The Brave Cyclist #Capston created  by the amazing illustrator  #ChiaraFedele, depicting Gino the boy at a bike shop where he worked.
