A Bicycle Club Formed at the Acme Clubrooms.

A number of the athletes of the Acme Athletic Club held a meeting at the clubrooms last night and formed the Acme Bicycle Club. The following signed the roll: Charles Bowman, E. S. Dowdle, S. S. Fogarty, J. J. Hanifin, L. A. Lamory, B. C. Leslie, H. A. Maxwell, G. F. Mier, O. L. Pickard, Steven Rice, T. F. Scanlon, F. W. Sharpe, H. N. Sloper, D. C. Van Court, M. A. Whidden, B. Ferris.

T. F. Scanlon of the Acme Club is an expert wheelman and has been teaching many of the boys how to mount a wheel. A few evenings ago Ned Campbell of the Dirigo was initiated. Ned can now ride a safety wheel in fair style.

Myron Whidden and J. J. Hanifin Jr. can be seen riding through the streets almost every evening.

The Alameda County Wheelmen will hold a run next Sunday to Haywards.
