Little cyclist metal figures

Hand-painted and made in France, 'little cyclists' have been a sought-after gift for big cyclists since the 1950s

A few years ago we ran an article in Cycling Weekly magazine on how to ride in a group, and to illustrate the article we used a miniature peloton of die-cast cycling figures. The response to the article was amazing - not because of our sound expert advice, but because readers wanted to know where they could buy the mini metal cyclists.

Cycling Souvenirs, the online retailer of all things cycling and souveniry, has now made it easy for people to buy the collectable figures, offering a selection of zinc riders in all sorts of kit. You can even buy ones with polka dot, green and yellow jerseys to recreate the Tour de France peloton.
