1909-Style Bike

We recently bought this bike for use around town (it's shown here on our first excursion to the grocery store).  It only occurred to us later that it's very much like the bikes that Vic and Ray rode in 1909, right down to the steel frame and the coaster brake.  Maybe we'll ride something like this in Wheels North?

Most Postcards!

All of the postcards sent back by Ray and Vic are now online.  Go to the Wheels North web site, and look for the postcards link. The first card sent back from Seattle was the one pictured here: the California building at the fair, a logical first place to visit for two California boys.

More Two Wheels North Postcards

We've scanned all of the original postcards sent back by Vic from the ride, and have more than half of them posted at Wheels North.  Look for a new link from the WN home page:
Thanks again to Evelyn McDaniel Gibb for loaning us the historic original postcards!
