BICYCLE CONTEST IN ABERDEEN
Dundee Courier Argus (Scotland) Tuesday, 5-Jan-1886

DundeeCourArgus18860105TueThis reports states that the race finished “last evening” i.e. Monday 4-Jan-1886. But normally the Aberdeen races had been running Saturday to Saturday - with Sunday excluded. Perhaps the New Year falling on the Friday in 1886 meant that it carried over another weekend (again excluding the Sunday).
