The Lehigh Valley loses out on the proposed “Bicycling Hall of Fame”. The Lehigh Valley was removed from consideration for the location of the “Hall of Fame” this week. Lehigh County Executive Don Cunningham had offered 8 acres of property next to the Valley Preferred Cycling Center in Trexlertown for the hall. The county could not offer a long-term financial commitment to the Hall of Fame’s relocation committee. Apparently the world renowned cycling tradition of the Velodrome was not enough to overcome the significant financial commitment proposed by the two remaining contenders, Davis California and Greensboro North Carolina.
