“It’s amazing to have almost 50 years of Cycle News at your fingertips,” says Paul Carruthers, longtime editor of the weekly publication. “The staff has always had the archives available in bound volumes to turn to since day one. Now we’re giving that same opportunity to the rest of the world.”
The issues are organized by decades, starting with the 1960s and spanning nearly six decades to the current 2013 issues. While these weekly snapshots of motorcycling history may be priceless, access to the digital archives is much more affordable: A subscription is just $1.99 for three months of access, or $4.99 for a full year of access to each decade.
Better yet, the Cycle News Archives can be read on any device equipped with a web browser (MAC, PC, tablets like the iPad or your smart phone). You can also use up to three devices with the same subscription.
“I’m really pleased to see how this archival process turned out,” adds Carruthers. “I just hope we don’t disrupt too many relationships or get too many people fired because they can’t stop re-living the past.”
