Let's unofficially kick off Spring and the start of the cycling season with a look back at Grand Junction bicyclists from 1947 through 1949. The following photos are courtesy of the estate of the late Daily Sentinel photographer Robert Grant. Enjoy, and let us know if you see somebody you recognize.

This little devil leads the pack while riding in a parade in downtown Grand Junction on May 21, 1949. Note the old Western Slope Auto in the background.

There's the old Western Slope Auto location back when they were on Main Street in Grand Junction. The fairy godmother in the foreground and her companion must be making good time, since they're getting a little motion blur.
