WILL COMPETE IN HUNDRED-MILE MOTOR PACED RACE
Now that the Garden City Wheelmen have won the big one hundred mile relay race, they are looking forward with much interest to the new race which is to be held during July under the auspices of the California Associated Cyclers. H. H. Varney of San Francisco has offered a handsome cup for a one hundred mile motor paced relay race around the bay. Each team will be composed of twenty men, each man riding five miles behind a motor for pace.
From all indications the local wheelmen will make a strong bid for the first place in this race, for they have the largest number of experienced riders of any club which will compete. There are forty or fifty members in the club who can set a very fast clip, many of them the equals of the members of the team which rode in the big race on Sunday.
The wheelmen will now keep keep in training during the entire summer for there will be races every few weeks in which they will compete.
