2/18/2014: The mention of A.A. Zimmerman in “The Fine Grounds of the Riverton Athletic Association” is an error. Lately, I have been fact checking our material about the 1895 race and I believe Zimmerman was actually talking about another track, not Riverton’s. Several athletes and officials of the day did praise the Riverton track, but I can’t place Zimmerman any nearer to Riverton than Mt. Holly. Note the Philadelphia Inquirer clipping in which experts characterized the Riverton bicycle race track as ”the finest quarter-mile track in the country.” – JMc
