Product Description

You'll love this because...

Via newspaper clippings from the past, you can reacquaint yourself with the history of British cycling. 

  • Personalise with any name and message
  • Handbound hardback covers with more than 175 pages of newspaper content
  • A4 and A3 editions available with colour pages from 2006 onwards
  • Option to present in a luxurious gift box for long-term protection
  • Incredible newspaper coverage from 1992 to the present day

Relive the history of British cycling through newspaper clippings in this personalised cycling history book. With coverage beginning in 1992, the year of Chris Boardman’s Olympic gold medal, this timeless cycling book takes you through three decades of history, revisiting all the key moments from the Olympics, the Tour de France and many more, right up until the present day. Now updated with Simon Yates’ triumph at la Vuelta Espana, including first-hand interviews, photographs and extensive coverage on the British cyclist’s victory.

Since Chris Boardman, a 23-year-old out-of-work carpenter from the Wirral, left Barcelona in 1992 as Olympic Champion, Britain’s first cycling gold medal since 1920, the fortunes of British cyclists have increased dramatically. Relive the fantastic achievements of Mark Cavendish, Britain’s first Road Race World Champion since 1965 and 2011 Sports Personality of the Year; Olympic heroes Chris Hoy and Victoria Pendleton, who can boast eight gold medals between them; Bradley Wiggins, the only rider to have won world and Olympic titles on both the track and the road; and Chris Froome, winner of the Tour de France four times in five years.

Take a look at the contents to see which historic moments are captured.

Very good quality and value for money

We were looking for a special 70th birthday present and this book is it. The gold embossed leather looks amazing and having the persons name embossed in gold is great. The presentation box it comes in is definitely worth the extra £5. All in all a very special gift. So anyone with a sport crazy person should contemplate this when trying to think of a great idea for a special present.
