Iconic cycling climbs celebrated with new coffee cup sets

Released just in time for Christmas... these cappuccino and espresso cups and saucers may be a good gift for a cyclist

Cycling Souvenirs iconic climbs coffee sets

Cycling Souvenirs has added to its already extensive line of bike-related coffee cups and mugs with several new offerings that celebrate famous Tour de France cycling climbs.

The Mont Ventoux and Alpe d'Huez cup and saucers sets come in two different sizes: larger cappuccino and smaller espresso.

Finished in classy black, silver and white, they are immediately obviously about cycling – there are no images of cyclists, for example – which means their appeal could extend beyond the cycling world.

Once you lift the cups off their saucers, you are greeted with a design inspired by the climb: so, a Ventoux observatory mast and a representation of Alpe d'Huez's famous hairpin bends.

According to Cycling Souvenirs, the cup sets are hand-finished and kiln fired in the UK, and most importantly are dishwasher and microwave safe.

Each espresso set (one cup and saucer) costs £15.95, with the larger cappuccino sets costing £16.95.

Cycling Souvenirs also do a range of cups and mugs featuring retro team logos, world champion stripes, famous races and designs inspired by Grand Tour classification jerseys.

His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
