Besides the ball game there will be bicycle racing at the Union Grounds to-day for gold and silver medals, the gift of the Union Club. The first heat of the bicycle race will take place at 3:15 sharp, and the final at 3:40.-St. Louis Globe-Democrat, August 2, 1884
I thought this was pretty neat. Lucas not only was putting a bicycle race before a Maroons' game but he was also putting up the medals. It must have been a fun day at the ballpark.
