The SA Tour Down Under inspired the painting Skinny Tyres. For many years I was an avid road cyclist with many long-distance desert/mountain rides under my belt. The determined face and body of the serious biker recalls the pain of pounding up a mountain pass and the excitement of zipping down the other side onto the flats of the high desert. Snow-capped mountains with looming tall pines, golden fields and red dirt reflect the memories of my TREK'S 'Skinny Tyres' on the road.
