Major Taylor – Cycling Superstar 1890’s – 1900’s

Check out this article from USA TODAY:

Racism broke him, but Black cycling superstar Major Taylor is getting his moment.

Unable to race at home, Taylor toured Europe and broke world records. At 22 he was going from country to country, taking on the fastest racer there in $10,000 match races, and winning. Thousands of fans came to these velodromes to watch Taylor travel at speeds approaching 40 mph. He was, pressure and prejudice. He was still living in Massachusetts, attempting various comebacks before retiring in 1910 at age 32, and then this man who had won so much began to lose: his wife, his fortune, his health.

By R. Michael Brown, Marketing Consultant & Freelance Writer

Even though I have over 150,000 miles riding a road bike. my Specialized was like riding a foreign ice skate. Took over 30 minutes before I got comfortable on it again.

Had it refurbished with new wheels and tires, new handlebar tape and tuned up by Bicycle World Lake Worth.

Retiring the Fat Tire for now. Back on the road.

They did a great job and ran info a familiar face, Jeffrey Langlois, a former photojournalist at the Palm Beach Daily News. We covered a lot of the same stories in the Town of Palm Beach. Small world.

So I’ll be riding that road bike again, hopefully a lot. Need the exercise.
