A few years ago, Malcolm Pexton wrote a brief history of the early days of YWW. This was hosted on the North Yorkshire CTC web site (www.ctcnorthyorkshire.org.uk), which no longer exists, and it didn't make it across to the only replacement (www.cyclinguk.org/group/ctc-north-yorkshire) that I know of.
As a very long shot, does anyone know whether any copy of the history still exists anywhere?
I did print a few things off before the site went down. I’ll have a look and see if I can remember where I filed them, and if that was one of the things I printed. Are you sure that it was on the CTC NY site, because Malcolm also looked after the old Wednesday Wheelers site too. It might be worth contacting him or Janet to see if he still has it. I think that Ann Benton keeps in touch with Janet.
