Two Oakland Young Men Take a Trip Around the Bay.

George A. Faulkner and T. A. Schlueter, captain of the Alameda County Wheelmen, made a most enjoyable century run around the bay Sunday. They started from San Francisco at 5:45 A. M. arriving at San Jose at 11:30 oʻclock, after having been delayed one and a quarter hours by an accident to one of the wheels. They left San Jose at 12:20 P. M., arriving at Twelfth and Webster streets in Oakland at 4:40 o'clock, without dismounting from their machines. The distance covered was 101 miles. The roads were in excellent condition, with the exception of the first ten miles, which were rather muddy on account of the fog.
