ALL AROUND NOTES. - Oakland Tribune, 04 Apr 1887

From Wooljersey


Hill and several amateur athletes are practicing at the Oakland grounds daily.

The Oakland Ramblers have moved from their old quarters in the Wilcox block, and have rented a store on Webster street. It will be fitted up in fine style presently.

A number of Oakland wheelmen will join the League of American Wheelmen annual race, to meet on the 2d, 3d, and 4th of July at Santa Cruz.

There is a movement on foot among some of the old riders to reorganize the old Oakland Wheelmen.

A paper devoted to wheeling will be published about the middle of June by R. H. Magill, Jr., C. J. Kryster, and B. Tisdale.

As the roads are now in a rather dusty condition, a slight shower of rain would make a vast improvement for wheeling pleasures.

Several riders on this and the other side of the bay are practicing daily for the Century run.

Tisdale has purchased Kryster's "star." He thinks that an "ordinary" is good enough for him.

The managers of the Fourteenth and Center street grounds in Oakland have recently improved the track, and it is now in splendid form for bicycling.

The members of the Columbia Rowing Club are doing very little at present, as they have nobody to contest with.

Mike Brennan and Jack McCauley had a prizefight in San Francisco yesterday. The fight was declared a draw.
