One for bike month from our friends to the North. The Canadian Wheelman like our American publications contains articles, letters, and advertisements. But Vol 4, No. 8 also has a poem entitled “The Return” which includes a possibly not unfamiliar scenario for the modern day cycling enthusiast…
That morn he’d started early
To make a two hours’ run,
But tempted by the skies so fair,
Full fifty miles he’d spun.
Then came to him the query:
Can I get home to-night?
If not, I have myself to blame
For this most dismal plight.
More bicycle ads, this time from Bicycling World and L.A.W. Bulletin (May, 1889). Three lovely bikes from Starley Bros. (Coventry, England) who want you to know that the Capital Cycle Co. of Washington, D.C. is the sole and exclusive agent for their machines in the U.S.
Oh, and did they mention their bikes are called “Psycho”? What the?
A bicycle month public service announcement. Are you insured?
Accident insurance for less than $12 a year sounds like a bargain. That looks like a heck of a bike accident and no one is wearing helmets! Looks at those hats fly! I hope the little kid landed on something soft. From the Springfield Wheelman’s Gazette, (1885)
