    PS: It must be annoying to phone users to scroll through the same pics over and over. When quoting a post, the image portion (between [attach= and /attach]) is easy to delete!

          Sylvester Roper died on that steam-cycle, and possibly the same day that picture was taken. As I recall reading, he died of heart failure while riding.

            • Wow Eric - interesting, worse things than dying in the saddle.

                Would that be preferable, Mike?

                      Another Grimm achievement on motorcycle

                      Screen Shot 2021-01-11 at 9.29.26 AM copy.jpg


                      The lack of a proper road did not, however, prevent 19-year-old Sadie Grimm from becoming the first rider to make the gruelling, nearly 100-kilometre trip aboard her Indian motorcycle.

                      Grimm, the first person to ride from Winnipeg to the popular resort town, was awarded the 1914 Manitoba Motorcycle Club (MMC) gold medal. It’s widely accepted that she was the first woman in Canada to win a motorcycling competition open to men. ...

                      The challenge in 1914 may have sounded simple enough, but the task was arduous. Manitoba roads in that era ranged from poor to impassible to non-existent, featuring long stretches of swamps and pastures.

                      There had already been failed attempts by other riders during the winter and early spring prior to Grimm’s successful journey. In fact, on the day she set out, another rider also made the attempt and failed. Miraculously, Grimm successfully returned to Winnipeg, via a different route, the same day.

                            Maybe the most unlikely place for off road rider and Upland, Pennsylvania's Walt Axthelm to be photographed. Originally from Lopez Island, Washington "Walt Axthelm is 87 years old (on 2020 December 14). As far as Walt is concerned, age is but a number: Walt is an all-weather athlete and he enjoys skiing, cycling (both outdoor and indoor), indoor rowing, walking and hiking."

                              • What do we call this sort of vehicles, Folks?

                                0A2.jpg

                                I have a slightly different view of Pem's pic labeled: P. Shilovslago on the streets of London

                                Here's another version:

                                zpsux.jpg

                                Or this one?

                                z2922.jpg

                                Somehow "trike" doesn't say enough.
