U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame

I got to visit the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame in Davis. I am not much of a cyclist but it was really cool to visit it and I did recognize some of the names in the Hall of Fame:

Eric Heiden's Cinetti TT Laser that was ridden in the 1986 Tour De France
Marshall "Major" Taylor's 1901-1903 Peugeot
Greg Lemond's 1990 Tour De France bike
Turn of the Century jersey of Frank Kramer
Greg Lemond's 1986 Tour De France yellow jersey
The first floor
Where the cool stuff is-The third floor
Thomas Firth and Sons Roadster -1823
1896 Bamboo Cycle
Gormally and Jeffery Childs HIghweel-1887
Columbia Light Roadster 1887
The U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame is pretty cool. I loved learning about all of the cyclists and the history of cycling in this country.

  5. How cool to see how bicycles have changed over the years. Very interesting. I used to ride a bike everywhere when I was young, LOL I have no desire for another one. Good job I enjoy walking now.
    Thanks Patrick for bringing cool bicycles to Fridays Blog Booster Party #15

  6. This is really neat and the old bicycles are the most interesting to me! I can't imagine riding those! I am not really a cyclist, but when we were in Chicago last we did a biking and food tour for four hours and it was a lot of fun... makes me want to get a bike again :) Thanks for sharing!
