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
  • A4 and A3 editions available with colour pages from 2006 onwards
  • Option to present in a luxurious gift box
  • 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.

Oliver Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 6 Feb 2020

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.

Disney Princess Book

I ordered the book for my great-niece and had it delivered directly to her home in another state. I actually didn't see the book in person. My niece said the book was made well. I put my great-niece's photo on the back of the book. My niece told me that the photo had a high-resolution quality. I would suggest a way to track the book so one can determine when the book is delivered. I was able to contact the publisher to find out when the book was delivered. I was pleased that it was delivered on my great-niece's birthday.

Ordering was fairly easy

Ordering was fairly easy, although I would have liked to have been able to read the stories first to see where the names went, I couldnt see this option. I ordered 4 books for different children. I was a little disappointed with the disney priness book, very small print and only A5, where all the others were A4

Zakariyya Trustpilot product review 1 star rating 19 Sep 2020

Very disappointed in the purchase

Very disappointed in the purchase. Very poor customer service and was told a bunch of lies. Update and reply to your message....WHY HAVE HAVE CHANGED YOUR TONE ON THIS MESSAGE? IS IT BECAUSE THIS IS GOING PUBLIC? WHY ARE YOU NOW SAYING SOMETHING DIFFERENT TO WHAT YOU SAID OVER THE PHONE? You were notified of the error 2 minutes after the order was made...and you are lying again saying you are working 24 hours because as you said ' nobody was in at work that day' I ordered the book on a Saturday 11.35 am...you were notified of the error at 11.37am......You had Saturday Sunday and Monday to check your emails and orders....the book was printed on Monday at the earliest because like you said nobody was at work on the weekend. The book was dispatched on Wednesday as I have email confirmation of the dispatch. ....please stop lying to customers just for your own selfish financial gains...STAY WELL AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY...MORE LIES TO COVER THEIR PREVIOUS LIES AND INCOMPETENCE.

I brought the burnley newspaper clipping book and to be honest, it’s not worth £50 at all! All the clippings are tiny too small to read so I would not recommend this book to anyone.

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear this.

    For this product we use the Daily Mirror newspaper, which is an A3 tabloid size. As you have ordered the A4, this does mean that the contents of the book has to be shrunk down in size, which may make the text smaller to read.

    We do apologise for any inconvenienced caused.

    If you need to contact the customer service team, please do on 0330 058 0403 or [email protected]

    Kind Regards,
    The In The Book Team
