FROM TRIKE TO BIKE 1 ARBUTUS FILE PHOTO
Before the women raced in their own Little 500 race, there was the Mini 500. Established in 1955 to give women a race that compared to the men’s ﬁrst Little 500, the two-lap tricycle race continued until 2004. The ﬁrst women’s Little 500 race was in 1988. Here are a few highlights leading up to this year’s race.
