Bike in Time

biking, historical photo, history, bike shop

Back in the early 1900s, biking looked a little different ‘round these parts, but you better believe people were still gettin’ after it on two wheels. Seen here is William Ginn, posing inside his bicycle shop sometime around 1904. The shop, which was located on the south side of Main Street near the intersection with Tracy, was likely the first bike shop in town. Wonder what Mr. Ginn would think of Bozeman’s bike scene today?

Editor's note: This is the second time William Ginn has appeared in this section of O/B. In our Spring 2017 issue, on page 28, he’s posing with a pile of big, fat trout. Clearly Mr. Ginn embraced the same outdoor activities many of us do today. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
