Cycling Souvenirs’ Retro Teams range of espresso cups has been around for a few months, the original four designs (La Vie Claire, Brooklyn, Renault-Elf and Molteni) having now been joined by six further versions.
This might not be the biggest news ever in the world of cycling but we reckon they look pretty cool.
The latest additions to the range are 7-Eleven, Z, Peugeot, Cafe de Colombia, Système U, and another Molteni design.
The cups are all hand decorated and cost £12 each. A set of six is priced at £65. Similar style cappuccino cups and saucers are available too.
We don’t usually like to use the C word until Halloween and Bonfire Night are out of the way, but it can’t have escaped your notice that Christmas is getting closer. That’s the way with Christmas. It gets closer and then it arrives. These might make a good gift.
We’ll be running our Christmas gift guides for cyclists here on road.cc starting in a couple of weeks.
If you’re interested in buying the espresso mugs or bike related T-shirts, prints, models and so on, head over to www.cyclingsouvenirs.com.
