We’re always excited to see Bill’s name in the news for his community engagement and charity support – not to mention his unusual and eye-catching hobby: riding antique “big wheel” bicycles as the Captain of the PA and NJ chapters of The Wheelmen.

Bill Soloway rides a big-wheel bicycle down a tree-lined paved road. He has light skin, glasses, an old-fashioned cap, a button-up shirt and tie, and capri-length navy old-fashioned pants. A caption reads The Wheelmen is an antique bicycle club with hundreds of members across the country.

They bring smiles to faces across the Northeast while celebrating the history of antique bikes, including their surprising ties to Philly and feminism.

“It’s fun to keep this living history museum, this heritage alive.”
