A huge collection of vintage cycling board games. The main site also has resources for rolling your own cycling game.

I strongly suspect that none of these would be very playable when mounted on my handlebars.

I just had a vision of the HyperGalactHoloNet of 2109. There's a virtual museum dedicated to products from the years 1995-2005 and aimed at the "internet craze". Large display on internet-ready power strips.

Member of the Italian team jams a frame pump into your spokes- lose three turns.

I didn't know there existed even one cycling themed board game.

I thought I knew a lot about bicycling spinoffs, but I'd never heard of this. Great post.

Pretty much the best post ever.

Spanish federation close your case, despite overwhelming evidence of doping - win Vuelta a España!

Oh, and now I know that my little cycling guy that I bought at a flea market is a piece from one of these games.

Get back to me when they have a huge collection of pirate memory games for children between the ages of 4-8.

Not too pirate-y, though.

(As a board game enthusiast, I have to agree with fixedgear - this is pretty much the best post ever.)

Who knew? Wow.

Some of these are incredibly beautiful.

This one actually looks fun... most of these are lovable just for the artwork.

Great post.

Jeeezzz, I'd love to have some of these just to leave out.

These are not all vintage games. Leader 1 is currently available, and was just released last year. Tour is also a recent release (2006). Um Reifenbreite is also in print.

A couple of links away, there's a page with collections of Tour de France miniatures.

I want to get a whole bag of 'em and make a peleton that rides across my desk. :-)
