Bicycles down the Valley, 1890 – 1910
by Gary Shaff on Nov, 8 2015
If you missed the Club’s membership meeting earlier this month you’ll have another opportunity to experience “Bicycles down the Valley: 1890 – 1910” on Wednesday, November 18, from 12 – 1, at the Ashland Library, 410 Siskiyou Boulevard. The noon lecture will be presented by Amy Drake of the Southern Oregon Historical Society.
A July 14, 1893 Medford Mail article stated that “Bicycling is the nearest to flying that human ingenuity has yet approached.” This historical tidbit and many others that Amy will share are sure to delight.
