50 Years Ago: November 1970 in Bicycling! magazine

Included articles are:

"Sunny Side Up" - observations of the US by a writer for the English magazine "Cycling".
"Amish Bikeway" - east of Cleveland, OH
"Cycling News" - short news items from the cycling world

"L.A.W. Roundup" is attached as a pdf.

"The Custom Frame" was posted previously: Frames and Framebuilding -- 1970 - 1979 (Part 1)

As usual, let me know if you'd like to see something else listed in the ToC and I'll add it in a reply to this post or send you a pdf.
If the latter, just send me a PM that includes your email address.

Compared to what Bicycling (or "BuyCycling" as one local Bay Area bike rag came to call it) became in just a few years, this 1970 edition is positively quaint.

I love the story of Howard Horn, a real "Breaking Away" . I wonder where he is today or if he is still riding. The adds are great , especially the Frejus add, Joe

Yeah, me too.
I've been looking forward to the day one of our BF members replies "HEY, that's ME!" in response to one of these 50-, 40-, 30 Years Ago...posts.
Of course, we do have a few celebrities, but they all seem to be low-key about it.
