RISING UP TO THAT HILL
Cyclists hiding wheel in wheel,
heading up against the Wind
fighting that sharply
curved Hill in Flanders
That rises boldly up in
the wide surrounding
open landscape, once baptised
'In Flanders Fields'
Behold these empty Poppy Shirts,
who no longer feel the pumpin' heartbeat
Of a Cyclist but embracing
A Great War soldier climbing out of
a trembling, shivering trench
Rising up from a nameless grave....
Handin' over the torch to cyclists of
Superb quality bicycle shirt available for men or women (adapted female models), created on the occasion of the 5th Tour de FRANCE stage which starts in Ypres (July 1914), as also being a part of the Biking Box Cycletours-philosophy:
"Come and visit but do it on a bicycle..."
A brilliant look-alike shirt linking the Best Climber's jersey in the Tour, but now enriched by the 'Poppies', a powerful symbol of a peaceful remembrance.
A whole line of cycle wear is available: bike-shirt, with or without sleeves (ladies), suitable bike-short (black for men, white for ladies, with one poppy-flower on both sides), Poppy-handgloves, Poppy-cyclesocks and temporary exclusively for the 100 years Armistice: the WINTERJACKET, so you can ride in your Poppyshirt-outfit all seasons!
Available on the webshop, to be bought in the local Ypres' souvenirshop 't Iepertje (Menenstraat 12 at 100 m from the Menin Gate Memorial, where each night at 8.00 pm the Last Post is celebrated...) or at the Biking Box Bar (Menenstraat 15, right across the street from 't Iepertje).
