  A few words about some of the category names for our supporters: "Scorchers," in 1890s slang, were fast bicycle riders. In the sports pages of the newspapers of the day, Major Taylor was called "the Worcester whirlwind." Bicycle riders of all kinds were called "wheelmen," and the League of American Wheelmen governed bike racing.
