The California Cycling Club has adopted a uniform for the parade as follows; Gray knickerbockers, black sweater with club emblem, black shoes and stockings, navy blue cap with club emblem. Each man will also wear a silk red-and-white sash, the club's colors.

"We do not expect to carry off the prize, but will undoubtedly make a fine showy appearance," says Captain Brunt. They will carry their usual parade banners.


Captain Brunt's scorch of the California Cycling Club last Sunday over the ten-mile straightaway saw eight entries, and of these three men rode it in thirty minutes. Edgeberg reached Haywards first, and this in the face of having had no training and riding a heavy wheel, carrying his coat, tools, etc. Their road race over the same course on September 30th will undoubtedly establish a new record. Levi D. Owens, the wheelmen's representative on the board of directors, was elected by a large majority on Tuesday last. His thirty-four-inch bicycle still be seen for the first time in the annual parade Monday.

J. E. Alexander, at one time a member of the Garden City Cyclers' racing team, and Miss Wanda Miller, will be married in San Jose on May 20. R. R. Russ, ex-captain of the Olympic Club Wheelmen, and Miss Charlotte L. Brosius, will also be married in the Garden City, the date set being June 14. Cycling and matrimony seem to go well together. Here we have had Ravlin, Foster, Argenti and Brunt and now Alexander and Russ.
