NEW ROCKEFELLER SPORT.

The New York Times
December 6, 1909


Tarrytown Surprised by a Glimpse of John D., Jr., on a Motorcycle.

Special to The New York Times.

TARRYTOWN, N. Y., Dec. 5.—John D. Rockefeller, Jr., has taken to motor cycling.  The residents of Tarrytown were much surprised this afternoon when they saw him on his machine going north toward Pocantico Hills.  Mr. Rockefeller wore a khaki suit and had a sweater under his coat.  He was not violating any speed laws and seemed to be exercising much care in guiding his machine.  He was not going over ten miles an hour.

Whether Mr. Rockefeller had ridden up from New York or whether he had been merely riding around the vicinity could not be learned.  No one here had heard of Mr. Rockefeller's new sport.  He is fond of driving with horses, but dislikes automobiles and seldom rides in one.
