Author Last Post

Marshall Walter "Major" Taylor's was November 26, so come join me (Nov 27th) and members of Major Taylor Cycing Club Chicago on a ride to celebrate his birthday! We'll visit the iconic murals on the bridge traversing the Little Calumet River, and then travel to visit the grave site at Mt. Glenwood Memory Garden South in Thornton IL.
