I’ve been posting some stuff here and there about the Urban Cycling Hall of Fame but nothing as official as this. This flyer and a call for collections came through yesterday from the man himself Billy Sinkford. Times ticking away so if you have some goodies to contribute to the UCOF get to it. Plenty of ways to submit and some info on some of the contributors so far below the flyer. A rad project and something worth looking into that’s for sure.
“The Urban Cycling Hall Of Fame
serves to spotlight the history and rich culture of cycling in the city. To date we have had hundreds of nominations for potential inductees, the window for this years nominations is closing quick. There will also be a physical Hall Of Fame that will be unveiled at Interbike and we are putting a call out to the community at large for submissions. These items can either be donated or put on loan, we are trying to build the larger collection of Urban Cycling Memorabilia in the world.
Some awesome items have been collected so far, we have Lucas Brunelle’s
entire spoke card collection (which is massive). We also have artwork from Greg Ugalde
who’s fine work has graced nearly every major Alley Cat in NYC for the last decade including Monster Track. Brad from Urban Velo donated the first Ghost Bike Sign
ever made. A wide variety of other items have been donated and we have Chrome’s RV
out on the road doing Collection Sessions in major cities.
We are looking for items that tell the story in every city, from bicycle activism, to races and everything in between. The Hall Of Fame is for everyone, and we want to make sure everyone is represented.
If folks have anything they are interesting in submitting for consideration it can be done by emailing your submissions here
or posting them on Instagram and tagging them with @UrbanCyclingHOF
and the hashtag #uchof. We need to communities support in order to ensure that nothing is left out and the collection continues to grow over the years.
Ride safe, keep the rubber side down.”
