Motor Cycling was one of the first UK motorcycle magazines. Launched in 1903, its green cover led to it being called "The Green 'un" to distinguish it from its rival publication The Motor Cycle. The editor, Graham Walker, was a dispatch rider in the First World War and had a successful racing career with Rudge, Sunbeam and Norton, winning the Ulster Grand Prix in 1928.[1]. He rode many times in the Isle of Man TT, winning the lightweight (250cc) class in 1931[2], and became president of the TT Riders Association[3]. He was also the father of racing commentator Murray Walker.

Many issues throughout the 1940s and 1950s had the strapline "Read wherever motorcycles are ridden!"
