Like many cyclists, the first thing I do after a ride is sync my Garmin to Strava so it’s uploaded and secured. I then make a cup of tea and sit down to review the stats, checking for any PBs and seeing if I’ve taken any KoMs from my cycling buddies, and trying not to be too disheartened when I discover I didn’t.
Once uploaded to Strava, these routes are secure but are only visible when viewed online. Have you ever thought how good it’d be to have a more accessible reminder of a ride, perhaps your first Sportive or Century bike ride?
Cyced is a local company, based in Manchester, that take your Strava ride data and turn it into a piece of art, allowing you to showcase your proudest cycling moments, alongside those Sportive medals and unread cycling books.
Top Quality Cycling Prints for Strava Routes
These are top quality A3 prints that can be hung on your wall as a permanent reminder of the ride, probably a specific achievement that you want to relive, sometimes physically and sometimes just in your head.
The Cyced prints are produced by hand via a manual design process with a high degree of attention to detail.
You can personalise the first line of the text, either with the name of the ride, route or event. For more personal moments, you may want to be very specific and choose to give the Cyced print as a gift.
These prints really are of top quality and are perfect for those very special rides; Mount Ventoux, Col Du Tourmalet, Alpe Duez or one of the many epic sportives in the UK.
This is a cycling blog so it’s unsurprising I’ve focussed on the cycling element, however, the Cyced prints are also available for Strava runs, walks & hikes so runners on hikers can preserve their special moments too, perhaps a marathon or mountain climb.
The Cyced reviews are all excellent, with people applauding the quality, attention to detail and fast delivery.
From a cyclists perspective, I’d like to see the side elevation added to the final print, especially for those epic climbs. I’d also like to see other size options, perhaps A4 and A5. A3 is perfect for wall art but may be too big for some people. Personally, I’d like an A5 print for my desk. Prices reflect the quality of the prints and A3 size. Other than that, these are premium prints for Strava routes that look great in my bike cave.
