Court Edwards - Unicyclist Supreme

The Bicycling World and Motorcycle Review - April 10, 1902
Court Edwards a trick rider, of California proposes to ride a unicycle trick wheel from Fresno to San Francisco. The distance is something like 200 miles, over some pretty tough roads. The ride will certainly prove an endurance run for man, wheel and tire.

Let's back up the story a bit ...

The Topeka State JournalSept 18, 1895
A Topeka Globe Trotter
Court Edwards Will Go to California on His Bicycle
To the Sporting Editor State Journal:
I will start for Fresno, California by wheel, on the morning of the 23rd, Monday. I will go from here to Kanapolis, where I will meet Mr. J.O. Snider, of Huntington, Va, and from there we will ride together. Mr. Snider is a man of about 30 or 35. He rode from Huntington, West Va., to Wichita, and seems to be a good rider.

I am 19 years old and have been working for Wm. Taylor, the bicycle man, for three years, and understand the bicycles very well. I belong to the L.A.W.,T.A.A., and T.A.S.W.

I will go from her to Denver by following the Union Pacific R.R. and then to Cheyenne, and then to Ogden, Utah, then to Salt Lake for a visit, and then back to Ogden and down through Nevada, and to Sacramento, Cal. I will then visit San Francisco and stop at Fresno for the winter. In the spring I will go to San Diego, Cal., to take a position in a bicycle store.

At a rough guess we think it will take us 30 or 35 days to make the trip.
Court P. Edwards.

The Fresno Bee The Republican from Fresno - March 31, 1936
(Couldn't see the whole story. Think this is a reprint or "what happened in ...")
Court P. Edwards, 19, arrived in Fresno on a bicycle after a 2,335- mile ride from Topeka, Kan. He settled here.
