About The English Cyclist
Hi there! My name is Rob and I'm the founder of the English Cyclist. I’m a designer by trade and am a little bit obsessed with cycling these days. Things started out in the rolling hills of East Yorkshire where I grew up. Cycling was a necessary mode of transport as I lived 5 miles from the local town and I had to go there to see my mates! Nowadays I live in the slightly more jagged hills of the Peak District.
The English Cyclist came to life in 2014. The Tour de France came through near where I live (Glossop in the Peaks) and as I had just moved house I wanted a piece of artwork to celebrate this and got started on a map. I popped a photo on Facebook, one of my friends also wanted one, and mentioned I should get it on Etsy. I did so and the rest is history. I've added many more designs to my collection since then!
