Announcing New Dates for This Year's National Meet!

50th Anniversary National Meet
When: June 28- July 2, 2017
Where: WESTTOWN SCHOOL, West Chester, PA

Re-mark your calendar for our 50th anniversary national meet in West Chester PA. The meet will be held from June 28th to July 2nd 2017. Our new dates will avoid end of school conflicts and leave enough time to return home for 4th of July parades. Due to contract issues with our original venue we have changed to a new and better venue at Westtown School, still located in West Chester Pennsylvania. Founded in 1799 Westtown is the oldest coeducational boarding school in the country with a storied history including student inventors of the flexible flyer sled and the slinky toy. This Quaker school is situated on a beautiful 600 acre campus which includes a lake and a farm used to source produce for the dinning service. The campus buildings have lots of character and will provide a wonderful environment for the Wheelmen to come together to celebrate our founding. This meet will provide opportunities to reminisce and celebrate the 50 year history of our club through a reenactment of the founding ride from Kennett Square PA to Hoopes Reservoir DE including a visit to the Marshall Steam Museum and a ride on the Wilmington & Western Railroad, a presentation by founders of the club and shared memorabilia from the clubs history. We will also recognize the bicentennial of the Draisine as the first two wheeled human powered vehicle and predecessor of the bicycle. If you have memorabilia from Wheelmen history you are encouraged to bring it to display. The meet will also include a century ride, flea market and games among other activities. Please join us for social camaraderie, riding and history. Look for registration materials coming out soon.
