Otley joins my Yorkshire Cyclist Collection

OtleyI am having so much fun drawing my cyclist images and trying to represent local towns from my personal perspective as a cyclist.  Latest to the add to the collection is Otley a popular cafe stop location on several of my favourite cycling routes.  The first coasters with this image on are just out of the kiln and on their way to my current stockist.

Cycle coasters – where next?

I’m getting lots of requests for coasters depicting other parts of the Tour de Yorkshire route. So far I have Leeds, Haworth, Ilkley, Skipton and Hebden Bridge. I plan to launch some more designs late September. So where shall I do next?  Let me know what locations you would like to see and any suggestions of what key landmarks should be in my designs.

I am also creating a mailing list to notify people of the availability of new designs. If you would like to be added to my list please send your email address.

More Yorkshire cyclist coasters

I’ve been working on more coaster designs inspired by the Tour de France / Tour of Yorkshire next year.  I am working my way through all of the towns on route.  These will ready for Art in the Pen (Skipton 17th and 18th August).  Can you name these places?

Inspired by Tour de France … Le Tour Yorkshire

As a passionate cyclist I am over the moon to hear that the Tour de France is virtually passing my front door next year.  I regularly cycle up Cragg Vale (the longest continuous gradient in England – 968 feet over 5.5 miles) and usually my head is full of glass.  Now I spend my time trying to work out the perfect spot to sit and watch le Tour pass by.  Inspired by this I have begun to work on designs that represent this exciting event.

I plan to make a range of coasters, keyrings and cufflinks with representing cyclists passing through the Tour route.  I hope to cover all the major landmarks on route.  The first two are pictured below and will be on sale in Hebden Bridge and Halifax within a fortnight.  I am currently working on Leeds, Ilkley, Skipton and Hawes.
