The Hall of Fame Inductees

Ten mountain biking pioneers were inducted that first year; between three to seven mountain bike legends have been selected annually since then. The 2013 selections bring the number of Hall of Fame inductees to 130 individuals plus ten groups. The history of the sport of mountain biking, many of the early fat-tire bikes and the stories of Hall of Fame inductees are presented at the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame Museum, which is located in lovely downtown Crested Butte, Colorado. You can find their names listed on this web site in the inductees section.

The MBHOF is dependent on individual and business memberships for financial support and to provide a voting body for our yearly induction process. If you would like to vote for a nominee on this year's ballot, join the Hall of Fame and you can vote. Membership applications are available on this site.

Buffalo Soldiers Web Link

In 1897, 20 soldiers, an army surgeon and a reporter led by Lt. James A. Moss, rode bicycles from Fort Missoula in Montana to St. Louis, Missouri. The trip was made as an experiment to see whether the bicycle could serve a useful purpose in the Army. 1890s America was also experiencing a bicycle-craze due to the recent invention of the "safety bicycle" (a bicycle with wheels of equal size and chain driven). Accounts make it clear that Moss had a romantic streak, and enjoyed the outdoors, as well as what he referred to as "the poetry of cycling".
