Club Library

The Club holds a physical library containing many important books and magazines on cycling as well as a searchable online library that has thousands of scans from the everyday to the obscure. The libraries are constantly being added to. An extensive list of Marque Enthusiast members is provided in the Yearbook. They are there to help with particular manufacturer histories to aid research and restoration and many have provided detailed marque information in the online library.

The library is run in collaboration with The National Cycle Archive (Reg. No. 272792) and our Dutch sister club, De Oude Fiets, and has been developed from an original concept by Ray Miller, David Higman MBE, and Martin Nash.

Within the library, you will find scanned cycle catalogues, cycling literature, and research material. There are over 16,000 items available to view or download as a V-CC member. Public non-member access is restricted to N.C.A and selected V-CC material.
