We start with a little sketch then progress to hand painting the wooden bottle opener. This isn't a fast process so please allow up to 14 days. If you need your bottle opener sooner just let us know and we'll see what we can do.
Once it's painted (using hard wearing and non toxic acrylics) we'll give it lots of blasts of strong acrylic varnish so that it lasts and lasts.
And you needn't stop at cyclists. We can paint almost anything onto these gorgeous bottle openers so whether it's a rugby player, football fanatic or trapese artist just send us the photo and we will do the rest.

We can even send direct to the recipient with a gift note - just let us know in your email who you'd like it sending to and what the message is. It really is that easy.
Cycling Print - gift for a cyclist
This fantastic poem has been written by our very own Mr C - himself a cycler. I think you'll agree that it captures the thrill of the hill perfectly (see what I did there? That's why I stick to the pictures!)
Ride the winter out, ride the summer back,
Every dual carriage-way, every single track.
Ride for wind in your face, the sun on your back.
For the hum of rubber, on a smooth tarmac.
Ride away the commute, the long working week.
The voice that says, ‘I can’t be bothered this week.’
Why say ‘it’s a hobby’ when you know it’s a need.
So work through the gears and crank up the speed.
Ride for the calm that comes with a one track mind.
With another route conquered, another hill climbed.
