The United States Bicycling Hall of Fame, located in Davis, California, is a private 501c3 non-profit organization formed to preserve and promote the sport of cycling. The organization was founded in 1986 in Somerville, New Jersey and has inducted cyclists who have "achieved tremendous success in racing or have enhanced the sport" since 1987. It has operated a museum in Davis since 2009.[1]

Museum[edit]

Historic bicycles at the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame in Davis, California

The Hall of Fame is located at 303 3rd Street, Davis, California. It is on the top floor of the building and includes the bicycles of Major Taylor and Frank Louis Kramer as well as a championship sash and medals from Frank Kramer.

The main floor of the museum includes topical exhibits. In 2010, there was an exhibit about the Tour of California and a display about Greg LeMond.

The basement includes an extensive display of historic bicycles that includes Draisine and Velocipede models. The display also includes landmark bicycles from the 1950s through the present that illustrate the rapid recent evolution of the bicycle.

History[edit]

The hall was formerly located in Somerville, New Jersey. The Hall announced in April 2009 that it would move to Davis.[2] The grand opening of the new downtown Davis facility was on April 24, 2010. The hall of fame joined a collection of historic bicycles that were already located in Davis. Davis has an extensive bicycling infrastructure, culture and legacy. It replaced the 3rd and B teens center, which was a slightly controversial move among the teenage population of Davis, but many of its functions, such as dances, were moved to the Veteran's Memorial Center.
