Description

Established 25 years ago, the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame has always been in Colorado. It is now moving to the rustic Marin town where young off-road pioneers gave birth to the now highly popular international sport in the 1970’s. They initially used fat-tired bikes they called “klunkers.”

The New Museum will be moving to Fairfax early next year. Fairfax is known to some of the “mountain bike mecca.” The building will take the place of the former Good Earth market building on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard.

Joe Breeze, an early hall of fame inductee and one of the main people to make the move happen said, “It’s the perfect location in Fairfax as the gateway to Point Reyes National Seashore and as a hive of bicycling activity,” and went on to say, “This is something I’ve been dreaming about all my cycling life.”

Established 25 years ago, the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame has always been in Colorado. It is now moving to the rustic Marin town where young off-road pioneers gave birth to the now highly popular international sport in the 1970’s. They initially used fat-tired bikes they called “klunkers.” The New Museum will be moving to Fairfax early next year. Fairfax is known to some of the “mountain bike mecca.” The building will take the place of the former Good Earth market building on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard. Joe Breeze, an early hall of fame inductee and one of the main people to make the move happen said, “It’s the perfect location in Fairfax as the gateway to Point Reyes National Seashore and as a hive of bicycling activity,” and went on to say, “This is something I’ve been dreaming about all my cycling life.” Joe Breeze is a bike builder who developed the modern high-tech mountain bike. In 1977, he released the 1977 prototype, “Breezer 1,” which is now in the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of American history. Breeze held an installation in the San Francisco Airport’s International Terminal which helped cause the move of the museum to Marin. After the exhibit, Breeze and two other Marin mountain bike legends, Otis Guy and Marce Vendetti went up to the cooks about moving their mountain bike artifacts to a larger museum in Fairfax. Once asked the Cooks didn’t need any convincing that mountain biking as a sport has become too big for their small part of the world. The new museum will focus on local mountain biking history as well as the sports popularity in Europe and as far as Rwanda. “It will be a place to celebrate cycling,” said Joe Breeze.
