Boasting Coasters

January 20, 2012

In 1892 members of Cincinnati’s clubs met for a mammoth field day at the Red’s baseball park. There were races, trick riding exhibitions, and a parade. For the parade the local cycling clubs decorated their wheels with bunting and streamers and rode in formation. Each club carried a banner with their club name and mottos stitched to the fabric.  One un-named  club was so brash as to carry a banner that exclaimed “Our Wheels Never Stop Except for Death.”
