This weekend, on April 24, 2010, I had the privilege of attending the grand opening for the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame, which has merged with the National Bike Museum. Recently relocated from Somerville, New Jersey, to Davis, California, the Hall of Fame is in a great location in the center of Bike Town USA (Davis is ranked the #1 bike-friendly small town in the U.S.), adjacent to the town's farmer's market (also ranked #1 farmer's market in the nation).
I am honored to be able to say that my Coker Big One unicycle (from the coast-to-coast journey) and my KH29 (complete with dirt residue from the Divide By One expedition) are now in the National Bike Museum, which is within the building for the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame. It just so happens that Davis, CA, is my hometown, so I was able to share the excitement of the grand opening with my family.
Here is a link to my pictures from the grand opening this weekend:
Thanks for everyone's support along the way! It is certainly an exciting step; hopefully it will encourage ongoing awareness of and donations to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
If you ever make it to northern California, be sure to stop in!
Rock n roll,
