Even before the Rose Bowl was built, the peloton round the perimeter was a popular event.

I have no idea, but I love the photo! They probably just finished riding along the wooden bike path that went from Pasadena to LA.

Obviously, the big wheels of Pasadena.

These are the poor husbands of our loco blogger's, correct?

It's the very first Amgen race. LOL

the first rose court???

likenarnia said...

these are the guys who ride around before the rose parade.

Bellis said...

It's 1900, and these handsome young men, perhaps members of a cycle club (Throop?), are in Central Park at the northern end of the newly built California Cycleway, either before or after their ride.

Somebody 95% nailed it. It wouldn't be fair to reveal who that might be yet.

Anybody want to keep taking a stab at it to get to that perfect 100%?

Thanks for stopping by, Writerphotodeb.

Bet Bellis is the 95 percenter but if not..... I'm going to add a date; 1905 for the Bush Garden's connection.

Isn't that a cool web site? I saw that show at the Pasadena History Museum. That along with the Orange Crate Art and Echo Mountain shows, were my favorites.

I've never seen that site before, Liz. Thanks for the link!
