The Mountain Bike Hall of Fame yearly inductions have been held in conjunction with the Interbike bicycle trade show in Las Vegas in recent years. That changed in 2016. The ceremony moved to the Marin Museum of Bicycling (that also serves as home to the Mountain Bike Hall Of Fame) in Fairfax, California. And instead of a single event, this year’s inductions included a Friday taco night meet and greet, Saturday morning guided mountain bike rides and Saturday night’s sold-out $100-a-plate induction dinner.
While the cycling industry’s support is crucial to the Hall of Fame, separating the inductions from a trade event was a great move. While mountain biking is a business to some, it is a celebrated lifestyle to the majority of us. And to hold the events in the shadow of Mount Tamalpais was icing on the cake.
