THE BICYCLE RACE
McLoughlin Brothers, USA, 1891
One of the first cycling games and one of the most important ever (my opinion). Although the former owner spilled an oil can on this copy of the game, I am really proud to have it in my collection.
Counters and checkers
There are two versions of this game, both from 1891, as far as I know (apart from The Game Of Bicycle Racing, a similar, though simpler, game from 1901. On the other hand, McLoughlin Brothers' 1895 "Game Of Bicycle Race" is a completely different game).
The other version is subtitled "a game for the wheelmen" and is supposed to represent a penny-farthing race .
