The Marin Museum of Bicycling is a bicycle history museum and cultural center being created in Fairfax, California. The museum will also be the new home of the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame, which has been located in Crested Butte, Colorado since 1988.
Mountain bike pioneers Joe Breeze, Otis Guy and Marc Vendetti are the moving force behind the development of the Marin Museum of Bicycling and the relocation of the Hall of Fame. The Museum will be located in a 3,000 square foot facility in downtown Fairfax. The Grand Opening is planned for Spring 2014.
On display at the museum will be bicycles from the earliest days to the present, with a focus on American-made bikes. We will feature bicycle-oriented events of all kinds such as lectures, movies, and live TV coverage of events worldwide. Our main hall will seat up to 90 people and serve as a perfect meeting place for bicycle clubs and enthusiasts and for events such as private parties.
The Mountain Bike Hall of Fame will be a central focus of the Museum and will be expanded to show more bikes, more history, more inductees — more Fame!
Museum and Hall of Fame Memberships will be available and are a great way to support our efforts and be a part of our success. Members will receive discounted access to our exhibits and events.
A gift shop, both online and at the Museum, will feature unique cycling memorabilia, photos, posters, clothing and other gift items for that special cyclist on your list.
Stay tuned for our exciting fundraising projects coming your way soon, and be a part of making bicycling history come alive in Fairfax!
