Arthur Henri Poole - Get set!
Thanks to input from Bob Montgomery 2012, we now know that this bicycle race took place on the cycle track built by William G.D. Goff, pioneer cyclist and motorist, in the People's Park, Waterford. The track opened in May 1891...Date: 1901..NLI Ref.: P_WP_0345 ( http://catalogue.nli.ie/Record/P_WP_0345 )

So, basically any form of transport - air, sea, land - with the exception of two human feet...
