August 15, 1999This one-day exhibit, marketplace and festival, making its third annual splash, had the centennial of Major Taylor's 1899 world championship as its theme this year. The outdoor show features antique and vintage bicycles from all periods, and New England's largest bike swap meet, with bicycles, bike parts and literature displayed by dealers such as Bicycle Classics Inc. At the Bicycle Concours d'Elegance, people's-choice trophies are awarded for the best bikes in seven categories.
