$5.00 / On Sale
Marshall “Major” Taylor (26 November 1878–21 June 1932) was an American cyclist who won the world one-mile track cycling championship in 1899 after setting numerous world records and overcoming racial discrimination. Renowned as The Fastest Bicycle Rider In The World in the early 1900’s, accredits his success as a world champion to the value of good habits and clean living.
I love his list of rules:
Don’t try to “gyp.”
Don’t be a pie biter.
Don’t keep late hours.
Don’t use intoxicants.
Don’t be a big bluffer.
Don’t eat cheap candies.
Don’t get a swelled head.
Don’t use tobacco in any form.
Don’t fail to live a clean life.
Don’t forget to play the game fair.
Don’t take in unfair advantage of an opponent.
Don’t forget the practice of good sportsmanship.
These were too good to not illustrate and make into a zine!
This is the 3rd edition of this zine. The first 2 sold out quickly. The current edition is dark brown and yellow.
