Welcome To The World Of The Wheelmen!
We are a not-for-profit family oriented
organization dedicated to the enjoyment and preservation of our
bicycling heritage. Wheelmen members enjoy all kinds of bicycles and
bicycling. The Wheelmen do however have a special interest in the first
100 years of cycling, 1816-1916. Members enjoy sharing what they know
about bicycle history, period costumes, proper bicycle restoration, and
riding skills with each other and the public.
State Captains organize group rides, parades, and other events for the
members to display and demonstrate their bicycles, costumes, and skills
in order to educate the public and add atmosphere to historic or festive
Our Annual Meets (Conventions) are held in different locations around
North America, in locations such as Williamsburg, VA; Buffalo, NY;
Golden, CO; and Toronto, Canada. In 2013, we will gather at the
University of Louisville in Louisville, KY. Typically, these meets include Century and pleasure
rides, bicycle competitions, casual games, and swap meets. We also
typically have social events which include Victorian tea and picnics.
