The Wheelmen.

The roads are quite dusty across the bay and the running is more pleasant in the morning than later in the day, when the sea breezes come up. A meeting of some fourteen riders was held Saturday evening at the residence of L Larzelere, 415 Bryant street, and resulted in the organization of a new club, to be styled the California Cycling Club. The club is organized for the purpose of country touring, and the membership is limited to twenty. A meeting will be held on the 20th to perfect organization.

The California Cycling Club announces that Messrs. Harvey, Theison and Reid will ride under the colors of the C. C. C. in all racing events in which they may take part, other reports to the contrary notwithstanding. Messrs. Harvey and Reid are new members of the Imperial Cycling Club, but have no intention of working or riding against their clubmates in the California C. C.


Among the new racing men in the California Cycling Club who have signified their willingness to train for the relay race are Bellman, Casserly, Heineman, Pattiosen, Birdsell, Erbe, Kilby, Boyd, Boyle, Prentiss, Friedlander, Thomas, Creigh, Lovie, Wentworth, Argenti, Aller, Sternberg and Reid. None of these riders took part in last year's relay, and all are mounted now on light wheels. In this list is some very promising talent, notably Tom Casserly, Ernest Erbe and F. C. Heineman. Erbe has ridden in Germany before coming to America and is one of the best road riders in this country. Heineman holds the State championship of the Y. M. C. A., beating such Class A men as C. C. Gilbert, Charley Common and Edwards of Los Angeles. Casserly is a new rider, but an all-around athlete and teacher of boxing in the C. C. C. Argenti is not ambitious for racing glory, but for years has been a pedestrian of some note and can ride fast if he desires, too.


At last Monday evening's meeting of the California Cycling Club it was decided to old the next ladies' night on February 24, and the committee in charge is Messrs. Larry Mayo, H. A. Feidlander, W. H. Westerfall, Alam Karl and Ed Wilburg.
