...Cannonsburg Cycle Club, prizes will exceed 500 dollars, in 1895 was like racing Pro wasn't it? Anyone familiar with this area? I wonder if this is a hilly course. I could only imagine the marvel of modern GPS would tell the story!
Anyone know what a "Handicap Road Race" is?
Looks like first place wins a new bicycle "Rambler Roadster"

Qutoe from the story:
"quote" The Christy saddle is a very interesting seat in historical terms. It was actually designed by 19th century ‘scientists’ because of the fear in the conservative Victorian era that women might be enjoying clitoral stimulation from bicycle saddles! "/quote"
