In celebration of the Tour de Franceâ€”and thanks to the generosity of Hudson Urban Bikesâ€”The Paris Review, along with Velojoy, are giving away one of Hudson Urban Bikes’ Beater Bicycles Roadster. This classic city bike comes in a menâ€™s and a womenâ€™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!)Â Elizabeth Bishop, Ray Bradbury, Joan Didion, Ernest Hemingway, or P. G. Wodehouse
Read The Paris Review interviews for inspirationâ€”and be sure to send in your entries by July 22. Submit to firstname.lastname@example.org. The winner will be chosen by the editors of the Review.
