On September 30th and October 1st, the Marin Museum of Bicycling will host the 29th annual Mountain Bike Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony. This will be the first year the induction will be in Fairfax. The 2016 Hall of Fame inductee-elects are:
• Matt Fritzinger, founder of U.S. high school mountain bike racing
• Missy Giove, one of mountain bike racing’s first mainstream female superstars
• Hank Barlow, founder of Mountain Bike Magazine in 1985

The Mountain Bike Hall of Fame & Museum was founded in 1988 in Crested Butte, Colorado. Ten mountain biking pioneers were inducted in the charter year. Since then, three to seven mountain bike legends from around the world have been selected annually. The rich history of the sport of mountain biking, many significant early fat-tire bikes, memorabilia and stories of Hall of Fame inductees are housed in the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame, now located at the Marin Museum of Bicycling in Fairfax, California.
