Band of Climbers
“THE RACE IS WON BY THE RIDER THAT CAN SUFFER THE MOST” – Eddy Merckx
Band of Climbers is a small design collective. When we’re not riding our bikes in the typically cold, wet and windy North of England, we’re doing one of two things.
1. Reading about tales of suffering from the old days of cycling.
2. Designing cycling prints that celebrate suffering.
We’ve been designing and printing artwork since 2015, and we’ve sold hundreds of prints around the world in that time, to other fellow sufferers.
Our inspiration comes from the tales of old, but also from our own rides over the Pennines, our road races, CX races, and even our deepest, darkest winter commutes. Suffering isn’t reserved solely for the pave of Roubaix after all.
All of our designs are printed onto 300gsm, high quality paper, with a slight textured finish. All prints are shipped in either a thick walled cardboard tube, or flatpacked into a hard backed envelope. Prints are carefully wrapped in white, acid free tissue paper to protect the artwork.
None of our prints are supplied with frames.
