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.

The book was for my grandson for Christmas so he hasn’t had it yet but it will really help him with his colours as he is struggling to learn them and having his name in the story is an extra bonus. I am sure he will love it. Well presented and excellent service.

Books for Granchildren at Christmas

The books are Christmas presents for my grandchildren so don’t know how much they will like them yet. However, on looking through the books they look excellent to me. Well thought out with the photo and children’s names. The stories are also very good.

    Thank you for your review.

    We are sorry to hear this.

    We do state within the product information do not include the ‘s after the Name as this is printed as standard. Only enter the name you wish to be printed on the book. We also provide an example when asking for the personalization, which shows only the name. Looking at the how the Child’s name had been entered at the time of ordering, the name had the ‘s, therefore this is how it will then be printed throughout the book.

    Please accept our apologies for any inconvenienced caused.

    If you need to contact the customer service team, please do on 3479239119 or [email protected]

    Kind Regards,
    The In The Book Team

I was so excited to order this book and…

I was so excited to order this book and honor of my great-niece who passed away from neuroblastoma. The card added the bear and the book had me pick out all of the outfits and I sent the order in. The book was wonderful however when I inquired where my beer was they said it wasn't included in the price and that they had I disclaimer on their web page which I have yet to find. it was hardly disappointing when I sent this to my niece in honor of her daughter that is deceased and I couldn't get the bear because of misinformation. I hope you consider this before you order and look at everything because I did not see that they weren't sending the bear with this even though it had me put the clothes on and everything. Really a good way to run a business
