Italian Bicycle Monument (4 pics)

On the highway between Tarbes and Pau at a resting place called l’Aire des Pyrénées you can find this very special monument about the Tour de France named 'Le Tour de France dans les Pyrénées'. This 18m high monument, made of alumina and steel, was realized in 1995. 

On the Italian pass Croce d'Aune (Veneto region in the North) there is a monument for the Italian who invented the quick release for bicycles but most cyclists will know him by the gear systems and other rotating parts: Tullio Campagnolo.(source:)
