The magazine is selling subscriptions for each decade individually: 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000s (up to current issues). Access to each decade costs $1.99 for three months, or $4.99 for a full year.
“It’s amazing to have almost 50 years of Cycle News at your fingertips,” said Paul Carruthers, the publication’s longtime editor. “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 Cycle News Archives can be read on any device equipped with a Web browser, such as a Mac or PC, tablets like the iPad, or a smart phone. Subscribers can use up to three devices with the same subscription.
“I’m really pleased to see how this archival process turned out,” Carruthers said. “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.”
