In 1913, the merger of the Sacramento Motorcycle Club with the Capital City Wheelmen catapulted Sacramento into becoming one of the biggest motorcycle hubs in the state. Cycles roared into town from all corners of California to participate in championship races, hill climbs, endurance runs and field meets. Races teemed with motorcycles of every make and model, including Indian, Thor, Yale, Excelsior and Jefferson, piquing the interest of prominent merchants, city leaders and superior court judges. Discover the stories of a transcontinental motorcycle relay, a perilous ride through a blizzard to deliver film to network TV and the women who formed a trailblazing motorcycle club. Author Kimberly Reed Edwards brings to life the exciting early days of the Greatest Sport in the World in California's capital.
