NATIONAL ROAD CLUB - The San Francisco Call, 23 May 1895

Last Saturday afternoon a number of the members of the new bicycle club, the National Road Club, composed of cyclists of the C and G companies of the First Regiment, N. G. C., took a run down to San Jose, starting from Fruitvale. It was a pleasure outing and not a test for determining the speed of the members, so they took their time and reached the Garden City in three hours and a half. On the following day they took a spin to Glenwood, in the Santa Cruz Mountains, and on Sunday evening returned to the City. The new club is captained by J. F. Norton.
