Ed Lee of Chesapeake City, Md., not only rides antique bicycles, he also builds replicas. The one he rode June 14 is an original 1887 Columbia. He has ridden a high-wheel bicycle to complete four Bike to the Bay tours. BY RON MACARTHUR

The Delaware Wheelmen invited people to get up-close and personal with antique bicycles June 14 at the Rehoboth Beach Museum. Just about everyone who attended the event in Grove Park had a chance to try out on of the high wheels.
