NC city is a finalist for cycling hall of fame
GREENSBORO — A newspaper reports that a North Carolina city is vying with one in California to become then new headquarters of the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame.
The News & Record of Greensboro reported Wednesday that the head of the organization’s search committee said Davis, Calif., and Greensboro were finalists. The group’s hall of fame currently is in Somerville, N.J.
The newspaper said Bill Brunner said a group from the biking organization will visit Greensboro on Monday and Tuesday.
Brunner said the group will tour possible sites for the headquarters. The group already has visited Davis, which bills itself as “the bicycle capital of the United States.” The city
pioneered the creation of bike lanes more than 40 years ago and is home to the California Bicycle Museum.
