At the last meeting of the executive committee of the Harvard University Cycling Association, a motion was passed to challenge the Boston Athletic Club to a team race, to be run on Holmes field May 24, directly after the base ball game between Harvard and B. A. A.; teams to consist of three men each. Such race to take place provided that the chairman of the L. A. W. racing board allows the race to be run under other rules than as laid down in the L. A. W. "track rule" 33. It was also decided to hold a handicap road race some time before May 24, open to all members of the University except R. H. Davis, '91, K. Brown, '91, W. B. Greenleaf, '92, T. Barron, '91, and W. P. Davis, '93. Such race to take place provided that eight men or more enter. Two bronze medals and a silk badge are offered as first, second and third prizes. The committee also decided upon a hare-and-hounds run to take place within the next ten days. Silk badges are offered as prizes.
