DAVIS, CA (BRAIN) — A new class will be inducted into the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame on Saturday, Nov. 16, in a presentation at the Freeborn Hall on the U.C. Davis campus. This year’s inductees are Vince Menci, Mike King, Doris Travani-Mulligan and Beth Heiden.
The U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame recognizes competitors and contributors to the sport of cycling. Since 1987, the hall has honored Americans who have achieved success in racing or who have enhanced the sport of cycling through their lifelong efforts at an annual ceremony.
In addition to the induction, which will be from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m., A Bicycle Sport History Panel Conference will take place earlier that day, from 9 a.m. to noon in the City of Davis Council Chambers, near the Bicycling Hall of Fame Museum. Doors open at 8:30 a.m.
Speakers include Dave Waco, Nik Farac-Ban, Joe Cironi, Ted Ernest, Pieter De Haan, Ray Youngberg, Gary Fisher, Jack Disney, Vince Menci and Patrick Lynch. This year, the panel will discuss the 1960s.
There is no admission fee for the conference. The Bicycling Hall of Fame Museum will be open following the presentation. Hall of Fame inductee George Mount will lead a ride that afternoon for those interested.
