January 31, 2000Major Taylor is the "Hometown Hero" at the newest Applebee's Neighborhood Grill and Bar. The chain picks a local notable for each of its restaurants, and cycling's "Worcester Whirlwind" is a natural for the Webster Square location in Worcester. The restaurant display honoring the 1899 world champion features an antique, Fitchburg-made Iver Johnson bicycle similar to one that Taylor rode.
