Garden City Cyclers three-lap cement track

From Wooljersey


San Jose, CA

The Garden City Cyclers had a track near the intersections of South First and South Second streets, in San Jose; the First street track. It was smaller, made of gravel, and they had disagreements with the land-owner, so they decided to build a new, cement, larger track.

In about five or six weeks the wheelmen hereabouts will again have their attention directed to some highly exciting performances in their favorite sport. On or about March 29 the Garden City Cyclers of San Jose propose to give a great racing tournament on their new three-lap cement track, which is said to be the equal, if not the superior, of any cycling racecourse in the world. All the best riders of the State will participate and the meet gives promise of being the best ever held in this State, which is saying a good deal for it.
