Edwin E. Stoddard of the Bay City Wheelmen is about to go East and go on the road for a wholesale house, severing his connections on the Coast. Stoddard is a well known and popular wheelman, and his leaving will be a distinct loss to the sport. He was something of a racer in his day and at one time held the coast ten-mile road record over the San Leandro triangle, time 30 min. 15 sec., but for the past year or so he has not been on the path or road, devoting all his energies to his business. His friends wish him success in his new undertaking.
E. C. Stoddard, one of the Bay City Wheelmen's oldest members, is now on his way to the Coast from the East.

Pictures of two very prominent and popular cyclists are this week produced, George P. Wetmore and Edwin E. Stoddard. Mr. Wetmore has been associated with cycling since 1889, and has taken an active interest in its development. He is full of good ideas, has opinions of his own which he is not afraid to express, and is looked upon as an authority in all matters pertaining to the sport. He is noted as the most accurate timer of a race in California. Mr. Stoddard is now engaged in the cycle trade, representing a large Eastern house. He was at one time quite prominent as a racer here and held several coast records, both on the track and the road. He is popular with every one, and can talk bicycling from any standpoint. THE WHEELMEN. - The San Francisco Call, 27 Apr 1895
Edwin E. Stoddard, of the Bay City Wheelmen, who travels for the Cleveland people, started on a trip last night which will last about a year and will carry him pretty nearly all over the Americas. He left here for Mexico and will then journey through the Central American countries, down the west coast of South America, visiting Ecuador, Chile, Peru and other places, then up the east side, stopping at the three Guianas, Argentine Republic and Brazil, and by the time he reaches North America again he will probably be more fluent in Spanish than in English. Stoddard jokingly remarked as he left the Bay City clubhouse for the last time yesterday that he might find some crack rider down in Patagonia who would be eligible for the Bay City's 1897 relay team, and if so he would try and induce him to come north.
