The U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame opened its doors last April 24 at Davis, California. The Hall of Fame will showcase Greg LeMond memorabilia, antique racing items as well as biographies of cycling legends, all encased in immaculate glass displays.
George Hincapie, who finished the Tour de France 13 times, was present at the opening, together with several Davis city officials, representatives of Hall of Famers and other legendary icons like George Mount, Ned Overend and Wayne Stetina.
Hincapie shared that his current residence, Greenville, S.C. was among the finalists for the relocation of the Hall of Fame from Somerville, N.J. “I was a little concerned about that. But now that I’m in Davis, and I’ve gone for a two-hour bike ride and seen all of the bikes here and all of the bike trails, the Hall of Fame belongs in Davis.”
Together with the California Bicycle Museum, the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame will reinforce the city’s commitment to cycling with numerous biking events to represent the antique bicycle logo of the city.
The U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame and is located at 303 3rd Street and will be open on Wednesdays from 2pm to 8pm and on Saturdays, 8am-2pm.
