Broncho vs Bicycle - a tale of the Old West set into verse in the 19th century by John Wallace Crawford a.k.a Captain Jack, the Poet Scout. John Wallace Crawford held his own in the frontier drama that featured such flamboyant figures as Buffalo Bill Cody, Wild Bill Hickok, California Joe, Colorado Charley Utter, and Calamity Jane. He was a veteran scout of the Indian Campaigns of 1876, an early pioneer in the Black Hills, and a star in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show. But most importantly, he was the only one of these celebrated heroes of the American West that chose to seek fame as a poet and playwright. The text is a humorous poem composed on the occasion of a dinner of the Boston Bicycle Club and tells the story of a race between a High Wheeler and horse.

There's a nice write up about it here from the University of Utah library blog - https://blog.lib.utah.edu/book-of-the-week-broncho-vs-bicycle/
