Capital Region Motorcycling is the next book in a series of Arcadia Publishing’s popular Images of America from local author Mark A. Supley with a Foreword by Ron Hedger. The book boasts more than 200 vintage images and chronicles motorcycling history in the New York area.
“I hope this book will inform the reader of the many motorcycle activities that were held in the past and introduce them to the many colorful personalities that participated in the events,” Supley said.
The early 20th century was a time of greatness and prosperity for New York’s Capital Region. Economically powerful cities like Albany and Schenectady were home to emergent companies that employed a growing population. This influx gave way to an abundance of stores and retail establishments that catered to newly settled residents. With the local economy experiencing unprecedented growth, people had discretionary income to be used for leisure activities, such as going to Proctor’s Theater or enjoying the sport of motorcycling. 
Capital Region Motorcycling reveals the many activities that were enjoyed by those who wished to participate or watch. Photographs of road tours, polo matches, hill climbs, field meets, scrambles, and short-track and ice racing are featured alongside stories of the Electric City Riders and Spitzies Roamers motorcycle clubs.
Available at area bookstores, independent retailers, and online retailers, or through Arcadia Publishing at http://www.arcadiapublishing.com.
