McKinley had a special connection to bicycles. He promoted the sport of cycling and was awarded with the endorsement of the National Wheelman’s Club. McKinley was given a bicycle by the club, but it is questionable whether he was actually a rider. Bicycles, however, provided a good campaign theme. Though a little different take on the bicycle theme, one of the most valued and famous buttons from the Election of 1896 is the Mark Hanna Bicycle Pin. This pin features Mark Hanna, McKinley’s campaign manager, driving a bicycle with McKinley and Hobart pictured in the wheels. This is meant to symbolize that the brilliant Hanna was the driving force of the campaign – so to speak.
