Bicycle’s history in Henderson dates back to 1881

Twenty-one riders entered a four-block bicycle race a century ago in downtown Henderson. Only four finished the course. The winner’s time was 28 minutes flat.

I’ve been writing my history column since the first of 1998 and have pretty thoroughly covered the local appearance of automobiles and airplanes. But I’ve never really given the early beginnings of the bicycle its due. I’m trying to remedy that with this column.

Reviews of the Best Touring Bicycles


When it comes to buying a touring bicycle, most local bike shops will have only one or two models on the floor, if any. It isn’t that they don’t want to sell a high-quality touring bicycle, it is more an issue of economics and what price range the average person comes in the store to buy.

If you go into a local bike store, the price of most bicycles will start around $300 and go to over $1,500 for higher-end racing bicycles and mountain bikes. Most of the bicycles you will see will be in the $500 to $600 range. Unfortunately, a new, high-quality touring bicycle will usually have a price tag of $1,000 or more. And many of the expedition bicycles that can handle almost any touring terrain will start at $2,000 and go up from there.

When considering a new touring bicycle, I use the following selection criteria:
