4 original Instagram accounts on the bike.

The bike is very present on social networks, especially on Instagram.

Even when you're not a fan of this kind of application, you have to admit that they bring a plus.

You can follow your favorite professional runner. Know your reactions after a race. Know what sporting events he prepares.

You can also discover other cycling disciplines. Personally, I discovered bike packing and Gravel through social networks. There are even Instagram accounts about unicycling.

There are of course a lot of unusual videos, especially in mountain biking, which show incredible descents or tricks on the bike.

And there are more original cycling Instagram accounts. This is what I will present to you.

As the name suggests, this account brings together artist creations around the theme of cycling.

Different styles come together. You can see very graphic works there. But also sketches. Anticipation posters featuring cycling. Others more whimsical like Darth Vader riding a bicycle.

As you will have understood, we can find many original images on cycling.

Here too, it is also an artistic account on the bike.

That of the designer Jorge Larco alias FETTE.

During the Tour de France 2022, for both men and women, he illustrated the highlights of the great loop.

There are also other events such as Paris-Roubaix or portraits of emblematic champions such as Peter Sagan or Julian Alaphilippe.

For those nostalgic for the 80s, at least for those who have known, we can remember the emblematic faces of this era.

We will see among others Miguel Indurain, Laurent Fignon, Laurent Jalabert, Richard Virenque, Greg Lemond or Bernard Hinault.

It's also an opportunity to compare that era and ours, whether it's the equipment or the very flashy jerseys, typical of the look of the 80s.

With this Instagram account, we can go back even further in the history of cycling. Admittedly, it is not focused solely on cycling, but we will be able to discover or rediscover old archive images, some of which date back to the beginning of the discipline.

You will find well on the mythical photo of Poulidor and Anquetil neck and neck in the climb of the Puy de Dôme. Or a photo of Maurice Garin, winner of the first Tour de France in 1903.

This account is all the more interesting because each shot is accompanied by a very detailed history which explains the context of the photo.


 

I hope that I will have made you want to go and consult these original accounts which are worth the detour.

If you also have good Instagram addresses on the bike, do not hesitate. Share your links in the comments.
