Gorey Tweed

Well we are not talking about blood and guts, we are talking about Edward Gorey, the American writer and artist of macabre Victorian/Edwardian inspired art. Known to many PBS nerds (including myself) for doing the classic opening credits for the show Mystery!. Amongst his vast works are some great bicycle themed pieces.
There was a young sportsman named Peel
Who went for a trip on his wheel;
He pedalled for days
Through crepuscular haze,
And returned feeling somewhat unreal.
