Wheelmen Roll Through Oberlin

The Wheelmen, a national group that focuses on the preservation and celebration of antique bicycles made before 1932, visited Oberlin July 25-29 for their 51st annual National Wheelmen Meet. Many cyclists rode upwards of 100 miles during the meet in total. Others took part in 75-, 50-, or 25-mile routes. The event included four days of festivities, featuring many riders wearing historically accurate clothing to match their bikes, a flash mob of cyclists, a series of workshops on antique biking, and a culminating parade.
