I’m pleased to release these new freebies: 12 free bicycle silhouette vectors. With the Tour de France in full speed and hitting the first serious mountain stage today there’s no better time to get your hands on these beautiful bike vectors. I’m a huge fan of the TdF and it’s great to see two riders from Luxembourg in the top 5. As you can imagine there aren’t many sport discipline where I can root for someone from my home country, let alone 2.
The set contains vectors of racing bikes, BMX, tandems as well as some bicycle pictograms. While I don’t ride a bike myself, like many designers I’m in love with the shape and geometry of bicycles. There’s something intrinsically beautiful about their clean, minimal lines.

All of these were created by hand in Illustrator and for the first time I could put the variable width tool introduced in CS5 to good use. Each bike is a group of different solid shapes so that you can easily alter the colour of the frame or change the spokes of the wheels. As with all the freebies released on the blog these bicycle silhouette vectors are free to use in both personal and commercial projects. Enjoy!
