Admin history
  • The National Cycle Archive was established in 1990 by the Cyclists' Touring Club with funds from a bequest by Frank Whitt. The National Cycle Archive Fund is administered by the trustees of the Cycle Touring and Countryside Trust, now the Cycling History and Educational Trust. The National Cycle Archive sees its primary aim as the preservation of records relating to cycles and cycling. The National Cycle Archive houses its archive collections at the Modern Records Centre, University of Warwick Library.
  • Papers received directly from individuals or cycling organisations are kept separately within the collection, unless small or serial items donated to a particular series. They may be listed under the depositor's name, or arranged by subject matter.
    Until June 2015 items were catalogued with the prefix MSS.328/N but since that date are listed using the accession number as the reference code (unless a single item deposited on a regular basis to one sequence).
