In a Royal Mint video interview with the Cycling coin designer Theo Crutchley-Mack (click image above to view), asked what was the inspiration behind your idea?, Theo said: I’m really in to my art and I love doing projects and things like that so I did loads of research, I got all kinds of pictures even some of myself on my own bike and stuck them all up in my room and did some sketches to start off with and I ended up with this final design.
