Filed in Gather Writing Essential by on July 10, 2012 0 Comments

In celebration of the Tour de France—and thanks to the generosity of Hudson Urban Bikes—The Paris Review, along with Velojoy, are giving away one of Hudson Urban Bikes’ Beater Bicycles Roadster. This classic city bike comes in a men’s and a women’s model, both of which may be seen in the diabolical and rather enigmatic illustration below.

To win the HUB Beater, tell us what you see in this picture:

  • in three hundred words or fewer
  • in the style of (choose one!) Elizabeth Bishop, Ray Bradbury, Joan Didion, Ernest Hemingway, or P. G. Wodehouse
  • Read The Paris Review interviews for inspiration—and be sure to send in your entries by July 22. Submit to contests@theparisreview.org. The winner will be chosen by the editors of the Review.
