George Street Bike Challenge for Major
Seventy-nine cyclists, one at a time against the clock, pedaled up one of Worcester's steepest streets in the annual George Street Bike Challenge for Major Taylor. On this 500-foot quad-buster where Major Taylor used to train, the grade averages 18 percent. The 2004 time trial was the third annual George Street competition presented by Barney's Bicycle and the Seven Hills Wheelmen. Medals were awarded in various categories, and Barney's raffled off a mountain bike and other prizes. More than $5,700 was raised for the Major Taylor Association.
