Vintage Longmont Bicycle Newspaper Articles

Some bicycle-related articles from the Longmont Times-Call newspaper archives. Clicking on the article will show a larger version.

First, on the left, from 1935, the Chief of Police cracks down on children riding their bikes haphazardly. It appears that riding on sidewalks was forbidden back then.

Then, from July 17, 1942, an article about bicycle rationing because metal was in short supply. You'll find articles about scrap-metal collection drives in Longmont during this same period.

How interesting. Thanks for pointing that out to me.

I'm curious: are you somebody I know? Angie?
