The Los Angeles Wheelmen are a very active and prosperous club and have felt the effect of the southern boom. It numbers among its members some of the most prosperous and influential business men of the city. Wheeling is decidedly popular in the city of the Angels. Great interest is felt in the approaching league meet at Santa Cruz, and the southern wheelmen will be largely represented. R. C. Woodworth, the champion of Southern California, is already in training, and his friends expect him to carry everything before him.

Woodworth, the Orange Grove champion, has been compelled to "lay off" for five days on account of horse races. It is said that he has strained the cords of his ankle while doing some hard work.
