Roadies of Yore

This is a series of early 20th century road and track cyclist photos.  I always find the clothing, the positions on the bikes, and the machines themselves pretty fascinating when these types of images pop up in my mailbox...that and the facial hair.

And probably leg hair too?!? It doesn't look like they are using handlebar tape, is that correct?

I think I passed you going the opposite direction on the Truckee River Trail yesterday!!

Pretty common to not see handlebar tape. I'm not sure if that was a product of changing out bars for different events or what.

I thought that was you. You looked very's hard not to on a bicycle ride.
