About the shoe/ Nike
“Eight hand-picked bicycle riders from around the world came together this Summer for one cause: LIVESTRONG. Each cyclist created their own version of the Nike Air Zoom Tiempo, a footwear style based off of the popular soccer shoe, but newly adapted specifically for city cycling. Bonding over color swatches and carbon frames, seven of the eight guys took on their own challenge, a journey across the European countryside on fixed gear bikes. The crew rode from London to Paris to attend the STAGES art show with Lance on June 26th, where just a few hours earlier he completed the last stage of the Tour de France.
London to Paris, 220 miles, 3 days, fixed gear bikes…What’s the worst that could happen?”
