The Great Bicycle Race of 1894

Found this in the Denton County News in 1894.  I lost the exact date, but it is was somewhere between May and July of 1894.  I wish they’d had a picture of the bikes.  And the winners.  I wonder if anyone in the area is related to one of the winners and has one of the medals?

This article came from a microfilmed copy of the Denton County News.  You can take a look at it yourself by visiting the Emily Fowler Central Library.  Just come by the Special Collections Department.
