Bob Maurer will lead a simple caravan (about 50 miles) to the Shelby Bicycle Days, an annual celebration of Shelby and other vintage bicycles and motorbikes held in Shelby, OH (northwest of Mansfield).
Shelby Cycle Company manufactured special interest bikes from 1925 to 1953 including the Lindy Flyer (1928) and the Donald Duck. Shelby also manufactured a large number of bikes sold through Montgomery-Ward, Firestone, Goodyear and Spiegel until AMF bought out Shelby.
Many collectable bikes, Whizzer conversion motorbikes, high wheelers and 1940s-50s bikes like the Hopalong Cassidy will be on display. There will also be a bike decorating contest and a bike parade. Food vendors will be available all day along with a pie auction!
