Icons Notebook 009: Fausto Coppi



Il Campionissimo, Fausto Coppi. There are legends, and then there are icons. Few sportsmen fit the latter title more than Coppi. His incredible feats, pure and perfect style and tragically early death ensure that to this day Coppi is revered, an untouchable, God-like figure. Cycling style personified.

Fausto won, and more often than not, won alone. His legend was born of his exploits: incredible escapes, long range attacks, entire pelotons dropped from his wheel. For Coppi, all his victories, all his panache, was equal: when asked to choose his career highlights, he refused.

"There Isn't One Exploit That's Greater Than Another'

Oh, to have such luxury of choice.


All The Handmade Cyclist’s designs start life as a sketch in a notebook. A shape, a line, a story. Pen, pencil, or whatever was to hand. Thoughts, ideas, plans. A great notebook is a companion, a colleague and a confidante.

Our beautiful notebooks feel as good as they look, with a luxurious and durable soft-touch cover (don’t be surprised if you can’t stop stroking them) and with 96 pages there’s month's worth of doodling to be done. The ideal size to fit in a jacket pocket or bag, with an elastic closure to keep things tidy. A great gift for the cycling fan if your life, or a perfect treat for you.
