When one cyclist breaks away from group, others pick up speeds reaching 40 mph in straight-a-way. He is mascot of North Hollywood Wheelmen's Club formed in 1946. They are shown racing through rugged Little Tujunga Canyon en route to Solemint Canyon, more than 20 miles away. Cyclists touring all day carry food stuffed in pockets and water canteens strapped to bicycle frames."
