1938 " Cycling " magazine article


First of all I'd like to say sorry for not posting any ride reports recently but due to work comments and the extremely hot humid weather I have not been out since pottering about the city. Also now is rain season which from a cyclists point of view is not so nice as coupled with high humidity it makes cycling any distance rather unpleasant, remember this if you ever plan to come to Japan cycling. Anyway a long time ago I purchased from E bay UK some fantastic copies of the old British magazine " Cycling " these old magazines offer a fantastic insight into cycling during the early years in the UK. The magazines are packed with all sorts articles for events, ride reports from the CTC and various adds for the latest offerings in cycle accessories. Pictured above is a rather interesting article from May 4th 1938 which I have scanned so everyone can enjoy it. If you click the image above you will get the larger version which should be easy to read. From time to time I'll pick out a period article from my magazine collection and add it to the blog. Enjoy
