HistoryEdit

International Cycle Sport was the idea of Kennedy Brothers Publishing, a printing company in Keighley, Yorkshire, owned by three brothers.[1] With help from cycle parts importer and advertiser Ron Kitching, they brought in Jock Wadley as editor, who was head of the newly defunct Sporting Cyclist.[2][3]

By 1972, the magazine was selling around the world, with a special issue for the United States that had different centre pages for local stories.[4]
