Boston Six Day Cycle Race 1879

Chicago1879-1Here are the results found, so far, of Six Day Bicycle Races held in the United States of America during the 19th century. They are collated from a number of sources and are far from complete.

A second page lists the Women’s Six Day Bicycle races and includes one organised in Britain by a touring US team. There are a few races on this page where men and women competed together.

The information marked in [] has been added to the original entry.
