Velocipedestrianism – Yesterday (Friday), Messrs H and J Earlam travelled on a tricycle from Northwich to Christleton (16½ miles) in two hours five minutes, without exhibiting any symptoms of fatigue. Two of the miles were run in six minutes each. The tricycle is one of their own design and construction, by which two persons are enabled to ride together; one, seated in front, working with his feet; and one behind him, accelerating the speed by employing his hands. It is very neat in appearance, runs steadily and easily and is a model of ingenuity and skill. An offer of £12 for it has been refused.
