Administrative history

The A&M Bicycle Club was created in August of 1897. The first elected officers of the club were Prof. W. B. Philpott (president), J. A. Baker (secretary), C. C. Todd (treasurer), and Professor Smith (Road Master). Misses Bittle and Sbisa were elected sponsors to look after the treasurer. Subsequent presidents of the years 1898-1901 were Charles Puryear and Prof. Smith. The original membership fee was $5.00. The Constitution of the College Bicycle Club was written by Prof. Connell and Mr. Todd and was adopted on September 1, 1897. A major project of the club was the acceptance, repair, maintenance, and addition to a bicycle track built by Professor. R. F. Smith in 1897-1898.
