The Story of The Pedaller
The Pedaller magazine first appeared as a slim 20-page A5 booklet in Mid-Summer 1983, created by the Brighton Section on behalf of the West Sussex DA. It was typed and copied by St. Giles Centre for the Physically Handicapped with hand-written adverts, all for the price of 20p. For the second edition, the services of The Brighton Print Centre were employed and then, many more changes occurred during it’s lifetime until it reached it’s present format.
The first editor was Ted Axford and then later, in the hands of Percy Copp, it grew steadily and permission was obtained to use F. Patterson sketches starting with the cover of No. 15, Spring 1987. The Pedaller had become the magazine of the West Sussex DA and represented the views and activities of all of the sections.
A few more changes of editor occurred before Alex Rothney took up the baton and established a magazine of interest and integrity. He produced The Pedaller for 10 years before eventually retiring from the post. Dave Galle then carried the Baton for many years and brought the magazine into colour before John Maxim took over in 2015
