hello and apologies for the recent poor abandonment of service, partly due to a rather hectic race season backed up by some good weather that could not be missed. What have I missed whilst I was missing.. well looks like issuu.com altered the embedding code they provide to embed their documents in wordpress blog pages which now work no longer so apologies I can’t embed the latest treasure uncovered from the wonderful world of eBay an original copy of the Motor Cycling Issue of the 5 October 1961 covering the first 3 days of the ISDT in Llandrindod Wells, Wales. I am now desperately seeking the next weeks issue.

 

This event was the last to venture into North Wales where it crossed the Berwyns from Llandrillo over the ancinet road more commonly known these days as the ‘Wayfarer’ named after the memorial at the summit of the pass dedicated to the memory of one of the great cycling journalists and part founder of the Rough Stuff Fellowship an organisation for off-road cycle touring.
