Icons Notebook 004: Roger De Vlaeminck



'If you have good legs you don't feel anything'

One things for sure, there's not many riders who had more 'good leg days'.

The Gypsy. Monsieur Paris-Roubaix. Whatever you call him, Roger De Vlaeminck is up there at the very top tier of the sport. One of only three men to win all five Monuments, four-time victor at Roubaix, to this day he's considered the greatest classics rider of all time.

In many ways DeVlaeminck and Merckx were cycling in the 1970's, the finest of a golden generation of Belgians who dominated the sport. With his signature sideburns, dark good looks, all-time-great Brooklyn jersey and effortless style, De Vlaeminck was as visually iconic as his palmares.


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.
