The Marin Museum of Bicycling is a premier bicycle history museum and cultural center in Fairfax, California. We display key examples from the 19th century Golden Age of Cycling, an expanded Mountain Bike Hall of Fame showing the birth and evolution of the mountain bike, and many more bicycles of all types from road & track racing to touring, to every day family transportation.
Creating a bicycling museum in Marin County is a decades-long dream that has finally become a reality. In 2013 our all-volunteer team of friends in Fairfax began to set up our nonprofit, design our space, and arrange for long-term loans of extraordinary bikes dating from 1868 onward. Working with the team in Crested Butte, Colorado, we moved the Hall of Fame to Fairfax, and we added many more bikes to the collection. Now, after almost three years of volunteer work, planning the museum, expanding our collections and fabricating our exhibits, the bikes, biographies, photos and Fame are on display.

MT. TAM LEGACY WALL
Project now 65% complete!
April 15th Project Update: We are actively selling bricks for quarter 3 on the museum side of the wall. We have about 20-25 bricks to go and then we can begin installing them. Tell your friends and help spread the word!! We appreciate everyone’s patience while we gather the rest of the order. Thank you!
The whole “Street Side” of the wall is now complete—it looks fantastic! Stop by when you’re in the neighborhood and check it out, there are some really great bricks!
Each Legacy Wall brick tile purchase helps fund the cost of running the Marin Museum of Bicycling, the new home of the Mountain Bike Hall of Fame and the Igler Collection of 19th-century bicycles. This is our biggest, most important fundraiser to date, and it’s a way for you, your family or your group to show your support and achieve monumental visibility. We are now selling tiles for the “Museum Side” of the wall, which is visible from the museum itself and during all our special events. Space is first come, first served. There’s only ONE Mt. Tam Legacy Wall, so don’t delay—order today!
FAIRFAX IS HOME!
Fairfax, California sits at the foot of Mount Tamalpais, which is widely regarded as the birthplace of mountain biking. Fairfax is at the heart of one of the most popular bicycling regions in the United States. The town is the jumping-off point for road and mountain bike rides to all points of the compass. Mount Tamalpais, the West Marin hills, the Pacific Coast and the shore roads and trails of San Francisco Bay offer some of the best riding in the world. Thousands of bicycle tourists from around the world stream through Fairfax. The town is on the official Pacific Coast bike route, and it is the gateway to Point Reyes National Seashore.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!
