After a nationwide competition in 2008, Davis was chosen as the new home for the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame and its museum. Occupying an 8,000-square-foot building in Central Park in downtown Davis, its collection includes a vast array of bicycles, photographs, awards, posters, periodicals and racing apparel from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries. In fact, the Hall of Fame has one of the most extensive bicycle collections in the world and is home to all the athletes inducted into the Hall of Fame throughout its history.
Events at the Hall of Fame include an annual induction ceremony; frequent Tireside Chats with cycling experts and an annual Fame Legends Gran Fondo, which is a unique opportunity for cycling enthusiasts to ride alongside America’s greatest cycling legends.
