The four edges of the square planchet feature nicely blue enameled embellishments with a five-point star in the center. The pinback reads: "SECOND PRIZE 1885" in black enamel detail and the hanger is intricately entwined letters: "PBC" ____ Bicycle Club. This medal came along with the 1886 25 Mile Bicycle Road Race Medal (see link below).
