Marc Evans, a freelance designer and illustrator based in the UK, has created an inspiring series of cycling related prints, each with an amazing quote by a cycling world great (or someone noteworthy just talkin' bikes).

But occasionally, you’ve got assignments that beg for a lot more options than simple […]
