Dayton makes bid to get Bicycling Hall of Fame
Accoring to a story in the Dayton Daily News, the city has submitted a proposal to become the new home of the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame. A group headed by the Ohio Bicycle Federation and Wright-Dunbar Inc. submitted the proposal last month, and passed the first round of review. The plan puts the Hall in an old building that was once the home of the Wright Brothers’ first bicycle store.
The search committee is looking for a space with at least 15,000 square feet of climate-controlled and secure space in a community that can provide support, draw in visitors, and is bicycle-friendly. Dayton is up against the Hall’s current home of Somerville, NJ, as well as Davis, CA and Madison, WI, the number-one and number-two bicycle-friendly cities in the country, according to the League of American Bicyclists rankings.
