Stunning pictures of the year in cycling - and you can pull out the prints and frame them afterwards

If you’re into cycling photography, you’ll almost certainly have heard of husband-and-wife team Jered and Ashley Gruber, who spend their year following the sport around the world and come back with some stunning images – and now, you can buy an art quality calendar of their work, with the pictures suitable for framing afterwards.

At £25 plus postage and packing, Jered and Ashley admit the calendar, which is printed in the UK, is not cheap. But another way of looking at it is that you get 13 limited edition prints – the calendar is limited to 500 copies – at less than £2 each.

Here’s what they have to say about it:

The Gruber Images 2014 Calendar features 13 months worth of dates, running from January 2014 through to January 2015. Each month contains one stunning image from the cycling world to keep you inspired throughout the year. With breathtaking panoramas and intimate portraits, the Gruber Images calendar is the perfect gift for dedicated cyclists.

This calendar is a small collection of Jered and Ashley's year in pictures - from the cobbled classics of the spring, to the high mountains of the Alps and Dolomiti, and finishing in the flying mud of the cyclocross season.

In addition to just being a Calendar, each leaf has two perforations, one horizontal and one vertical to enable the buyer to separate the image from the dates. With this you're not just receiving a calendar, you're receiving thirteen high quality prints that you can frame and make your own.

The Calendar itself is 225mm x 500mm in size and has fourteen leaves plus a special high quality blind embossed front cover and board back to save that 'wobbly' feel you get from many Calendars. This calendar oozes quality throughout, from the embossed front cover through to the recycled fine art paper it's printed on.

Pre-orders are currently being taken here, with delivery expected in the third week of December.

Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.

Hope you being ironic bikeboy. The second January will be 2015. Most decent calendars do this to allow for planning into the new year  3

I may be being ignorant because I don't use a wall calendar, but it would only be ironic if I worked in a calendar factory. Unless you mean the Alanis Morrissette kind of irony.

That would be the Gruber's then!  24 35

Still... Makes you wonder if Castelli used the January image over 12 months ago in production for this months image... what others above have been used elsewhere - perhaps not as limited as first thought?!?

Depends whether or not the copyright was assigned - remember the hoohah when Giro used an (adapted version of an) image Jered had done for Castelli in their publicity for 2012 edition?

They did right by him, but only after a bit of a social media outcry - although I think their initial reaction was the pic was supplied by Castelli whom they thought owned the copyright.
