The bicycle races at the Fabiola Floral Fete, to be held on Mayday at the Oakland Trotting Park, will be a big feature of the day's programme. Prizes amounting to $600 will be awarded for races and special events. A lantern parade will be held in Oakland April 29 or 30, and valuable trophies will be given to the club making the best appearance and the visiting club having the largest number in line. The track will be placed in fine condition at the Trotting Park, and as new grand stands are being erected there will be ample provision for the large attendance expected. The committee in charge of the bicycle events of the fete consists of George F. Neece (chairman), Acme Club; W. E. Griffith, captain Reliance Club Wheelmen, and A. P. Swain, captain Acme Club Wheelmen. The National racing circuit will open at this fete, going to Santa Rosa on May 2. It will attract some of the fastest men in the world, who will follow the circuit all over the country.
