Cool lil' museum about the history of Cycling in the USA. It has some nice exhibits that would "pumped" any cycling enthusiast. If you planning to visit check the opening hours first because it is limited. Enjoy!

If you like bicycle history, both the concept of the bicycle for fun and sport you will enjoy touring this place. Lots of unique bicycles and best of all many related items of professional and famous bicycle riders. And It's free.

Some old bikes, a recounting of the history of the sport. We did NOT go downstairs which costs a few bucks, but it's probably worth the stopover if you're a bicycle enthusiast. If not, the displays did not really put things into perspective. In most...More

I did not know there were so many predecessors to the modern bicycle. Lots of historical original equipment on display with very informative placards. Walking through the museum will let you learn pretty much anything you might ever want to know about bicycle history, mechanics,...More

The motto of Davis, CA is, "Most bicycle friendly town in the world." Therefore, it's an appropriate location for this small museum. Moved from NJ in 2008(?), the Hall of Fame honors bicycling legends, primarily racers. In addition; however, it includes an interesting and extensive...More

It is really fun to see the antique bikes as well as all of the racer history. What is somewhat missing from this museum are mountain bikes and commuter items. It's not perfect, but was better than I had expected. Couple this visit with the...More

Go here if you like the sport of cycling. I was lucky enough to be invited to the opening several years ago. The place has grown a bit but it is still rather small. They have some nice artifacts but nothing earth shocking.

They have lots of bikes from throughout the years from the Penny Farthing to racing bikes. Upstairs there is a little movie you can watch. It seemed small yet they did have a lot of information. There is an entrance fee.

For such a bike-friendly place, this was a disappointment. At least you can see some of the famous bikes from the outside windows, since they are only open one weeknight evening and for a few hours on the weekend. Oh well, I guess most people...More

Davis is the most bike friendly city in the nation, and was recognized for that by having the US Bicycling Hall of Fame Musuem in Davis. Lot's of interesting historical bicycles. Could be expanded, perhaps had videos and more hands on.
