Climbs of the Oisans Tube Map

28 May

Introducing our Climbs of the Oisans tube map

Inspired by a visit to London in 2016 we thought it would be great to come up with a tube map design of the local climbs with Bourg d’Oisans as the hub. What started off as a badly scribbled design by Phil has turned into this beautiful tube map designed by a graphic artist client who hired bikes to cycle Alpe d’Huez from us in 2017.

The design is exclusive to us and we have had 200 copies commissioned on high quality printed paper with a “foiled” PROMPT CYCLE CULTURE logo in the bottom right hand corner.

Cut to a size of 70cm x 50cm they fit perfectly into a Ribba Ikea frame.

Delivery is expected in the first week of June and all pre orders will be posted out in a strong poster tube as soon as we have them.

All orders received before 1st June 2018 will also receive a small collection of exclusive postcards.
