Vintage Monterey Bike Race

It’s hard to find cycling stories from Monterey that pre-date the Velo Club, but here’s a flyer, map and press coverage for a Road Race held on the Monterey Peninsula back in 1951.

The race was put on by the Chamber of Commerce. 33 Racers competed and did 2 laps around the Peninsula.

These were found on Velovecchio.com , a site with some nice vintage Northern California cycle racing photos and stories.
