July 1962 - Part II - Empire Games preview & other news

I've had contact from the US from someone who has a number of issues of the Australian Cyclist from 1948-1951. I hope to be able to get scans of those magazines to add to the collection that I have and to post them here. Thanks Dave and to Karen for pitting me in touch with him.

The scans here are more of an 'archival' nature - I presented some of the feature articles from the July 62 issue in my last post and in this post, I'm going to post pages 1-5, which contained a mix of writing. I hope to post the complete July 1962 issue in coming posts, purely to give you all an idea of what made up a complete issue of the magazine.

If anyone has any of the issues of RIDE magazine from last year - please get in touch - there was a write-up on Bill Long, the editor of the Australian Cyclist in one of them, but I threw it out in my move. I'd be keen to post those scans here to document who Bill was and did.

Also, if there are others out there who are interested in Australian bicycles and history, I'd recommend you have a look at the Ozpushies group.
