50 Years Ago in CRW

July 1969 was the Summer of Love in San Francisco, but here in New England, CRW's newletter extolled a Rockport Bike Rally hosted by the League of American Wheelmen. "Cape Ann was filled with cyclists following marked routes… Many high wheelers came and had their own tour… Rockport was dazzled by a parade led by Dr. Paul Dudley White and Little Miss Heart and including twenty high wheelers and other antique cycles, five unicycles, and hundreds of other bicycles." Well, good to know the "high wheelers" were actual bicycles.
