Background on LeRoy Long's Early Cycling Career

LeRoy Long is on the left
My Dad, LeRoy Long, was a cyclist for most of his life. Most don't know how he began cycling. His local Lake Sherwood newspaper interviewed him with most of the story.

My Aunt Mary Long Wassmund continued the story. While he was delivering by bicycle for a drug store, he became acquainted with Ray George who had a cycle shop. Dad worked there also repairing bicycles, and it was at Ray's that he began racing.More on his cycling in the late 1930's and early 1940's later.
