US Bicycling Hall of Fame Opens Today in Davis, CA

From the US Bicycling Hall of Fame website:

The new US Bicycling Hall of Fame opens this Saturday in Downtown Davis!

Please join us this Saturday, April 24, at 11:30 a.m. in Downtown Davis for the grand opening ceremony of the US Bicycling Hall of Fame at 303 B Street (corner of third and B, downtown).

Enjoy complimentary access to the Hall of Fame from 12-4pm on Saturday, immediately following the grand opening ceremony.

Dignitaries from Davis and Somerville, NJ (the former home of the U.S. Hall of Fame) will officially open the building by cutting a “ribbon” made entirely of used bicycle tires.

The move of the United States Bicycling Hall of Fame to Davis came after a nationwide search for a new home. Bicycling Magazine recently named Davis as #1 bike-friendly small town in America.

    Lon Haldeman was one of the most extraordinary athletes ever to compete in cycling, and since his retirement from competitive cycling he has been a highly respected promoter of bicycling in the United States.

    For him to not be included in the United States Bicycling “Hall of Fame” really detracts from the organization.

    They’ll be adding new inductees every year. I’m sure he’s on the list for inclusion.
