Bike Room

I’m remodeling the house I’ve lived in for the last 15 years or so, and with this comes the opportunity to revisit the bike room.  I’ve ceded most control over the decorating decisions for the upper floors to my lovely wife, with the understanding that the decisions in the basement and garage are largely mine.  The theme for the garage is bike room, and I’ve decided to paint it with a theme of some of my favorite and most historic cycling team jerseys.  This is a work in progress, as I’ve now painted it with red, yellow, and celeste.  But I’m super excited by it, and I think it’s coming along nicely.

In fact, I have been so excited by this little part of my project that I've lost sleep on several nights just thinking about what jerseys to include, layout, etc.

I'm planning on including the following:
- Tour de France Yellow and Pois Rouge
- World Champs Stripes around the room at the post in the wall shown above
Around the Walls:
- Coppi Bianchi
- Merckx Molteni and Faema (he gets two)
- LeMond La Vie Claire
- Hampsten 7-Eleven
- Badger Renault
Rest of the ceiling this side of WC stripes:
- Giro Pink
