The Golden Book of Cycling was created in 1932 by Cycling, a British cycling magazine, to celebrate "the Sport and Pastime of Cycling by recording the outstanding rides, deeds and accomplishments of cyclists, officials and administrators." There exists only a single copy of this compendium of illuminated manuscripts.[1][2][3][4]

Each page was crafted to honour a single cycling hero. The original book was finished in 1972, but the tradition has been continued by The Pedal Club, who also maintain the archive of the original book.[1][3][4]

Golden pages[edit]

Chapter 2[edit]

The original golden book was finally shut in 1972.[2] In 1991 the Pedal Club started "The Pedal Club Golden Book" to resurrect the tradition.[2]
