WEEK FOR MOTOR CYCLISTS
The New York Times
April 25, 1915
Commercial Uses of Two-Wheeler to be Demonstrated May 16 to 23.
Motor Cycle Week will be held throughout the United States from May 16 to 23. This is not only to be a week when every dealer will endeavor to establish a record for the sale of motor cycles, but will mean a week when every phase of motor cycle life will be emphasized. The various commercial uses to which the two-wheeler is adapted will be demonstrated; the pleasure to be derived from the motor cycle; the numerous advantages of belonging to a motor cycle club, and the value of affiliation with the Federation of American Motor Cyclists will all be brought to the attention of the public.
It is planned during the week to set aside one day for each phase of motor cycle activities, and on that day one particular feature of the two-wheeler will be demonstrated all over the country, from coast to coast and Gulf to lakes. Sunday will be known as Club Day, when the members of every motor cycle club are expected to get together for some sort of celebration. Each club is to make it a point to see that all non-club riders are invited to participate, and thereby endeavor to interest them in the organization. Monday will be Demonstration Day; Tuesday is designated Commercial Day; Wednesday, Carnival Day; Thursday, Ladies' Day; Friday, Bicycle Day, and Saturday "The King of Sports" Day.
