On the reverse of this card, with a map of Virginia, USA, and an extraordinary cyclist, is a note about her getting a new bicycle and her adventure with it.
It's Duck egg blue with a wicker basket. Lovely sounding.
The postage stamp was adhered to the outside of the clear envelope. Clever move.
You can see, even in this scan, how precisely she cut the image of the cyclists.
Thanks, Gina, for these terrific entries.

I like the way Marina took a publicity card for a bicycle company Mustang, with model named Dagmar, and altered the wheels. Cleverly using postage stamps, she creates a sense of movement. I really like this.
This is the first Mail Art from Denmark. I was happy to see the postmark as we were in Copenhagen, many years ago on our honeymoon. We enjoyed the city very much. We drove to Helsingor and stopped at the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. We saw a Magritte exhibit there. Ah, Memories.
Thanks, Marina for the Mail Art and the memories.
I think that for the most part, the race circuits will be fairly flat, but there are a few areas where the riders will have to go up or down hills. Riding high, indeed.
Thanks B, for another piece.

A simple admonition, an exclamation, BIKE! The tire treads show a lot of actions, which we're really looking forward to.
Thanks, Vivien, art camper, for your entry.
This entry has a note on the back "do not put on scanner glass" which I didn't read until after I scanned it. Ooops. The upper and lower bands are actual sandpaper. They did not ruin the glass, whew. I like the way the torn edges created mountain landscapes
And that's exactly what will happen in a month!
Thanks Kat, for your entres.
I like the text: Really?
Bicycles in the neighborhood. I've been noticing more and more of them in my neighborhood. For a long time there was one chained to a sign at the end of our block, for months, then one day, it was gone. Who did it belong to? Why was it there so long? Questions to remain unanswered.
Thanks B Kapp for submitting more terrific cards, and with your signature dots.
Thanks for sending, Bob
Thanks, Jill for setting my imagination going about points of view.
The race is a month away! Excitement is building.

Is the latter a beer?
B Kapp's dots are make her cards a lot of fun.
Thanks, Creighton. I hope you Bike, also.
Very exciting to receive, but then - inside the envelope was a small Zine!
Isn't it delightful?
Vizma is a Mail Artist and a member of IUOMA.
What a nice addition to this exhibit.
Thanks for having the kids participate, Jill, and thanks for sending your Mail Art, too.
This is quite an encouraging card, and I'm sure the cyclists will do just that!

Thanks for entering, Abby.
Bici offers a narrative - I was creating a story for it the moment it arrived.
The postage stamps are terrific, keeping with the theme.
This photo is by Eduard, himself.
Eduard has a Mail Art project, also. You can check it out HERE.
It's something we, too, can participate in if we'd like.
Thanks, Eduard for two entries to the exhibit. Спасибо.

Let's hope the cyclists in the UCI World Races keeps this motto, right?
Here's one from Xavier that looks like it was done by rolling something on the paper to created the look of bicycle tires rolling along. How's this for action and the thrill of the race!

Thanks B for your delightful Mail Art, and your encouragement to ride and ride with care!

She included information that there'll be a bicycle exhibit at Uptown Gallery in September to coincide with the UCI World Races.
Wonderful, our small city is going to have lots for visitors to see besides the actual races. If you're nearby, do come to town, and do stop at the galleries.
Thanks, Emma Lou.
Thanks, Sarah, for sending something for the exhibit.

Here's what her note says: "Not exactly Mail Art. Well, at least not art made by me. But when I saw what you should find on this illustration, I though immediately of your exhibition."
What is one supposed to look for on the card? A square-wheeled bike!!
