The wonderfully-named and faded nearly to nothing then reconstituted by great effort League of American Wheelmen (LAW), the nation's very first bike gang (in the XIXth Cent., pedalling high-wheeled "pennyfarthing" ordinaries) became, some sixteen years ago, the prosaically practical League of American Bicyclists.
H'mm, tenor of the times an' all that; what's one more advocacy group? (All the other kids do it, after all). Still, I'd be sad if that were the end of it.
Luckily for me, it's not: ladies and gentlemen, I give you: The Wheelmen!
They're my heros. I'll be watching this bunch closely; they look to be a prime source of material for Retrotechnologist.
(Staghounds, you know this is all your fault, sending me that antique bicycle book...!)
