Nomination & Selection Procedures
Inductees are selected from one of three categories:
- Advocacy: Individuals whose efforts have resulted in significant improvements in bicycle infrastructure or safety education or whose efforts have encouraged more people to ride.
- Industry: Business owners and members of the state bicycle industry who have contributed to the growth of the industry, advancement of cycling technology and/or supported advocacy, sport and charity.
- Sport: Those who have advanced the sport through contributions in the areas of equipment, coaching, and overall promotion of the competitive sport.
Authority to Nominate:
Anyone can nominate a candidate, but they must provide supporting documentation of the nominee’s accomplishments in order for the nominee to be considered for placement on the ballot. Please be as complete as possible and document major accomplishments. A list of what are considered a nominee’s top 10 accomplishments is a good start. Submitted documents will not be returned and are retained as part of the Hall of Fame’s archives. Please submit copies of materials you wish to keep.
Email your nominations to email@example.com.
The nominees will then be reviewed and chosen by the Inductee Selection Committee, made up of representatives from our state bicycle industry, the racing community and local advocates. We are seeking additional members for the selection committee. Interested candidates please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Inductee Selection Committee :
- David Schlabowske
- Tom Schuler
- Richard Schwinn
- Phil Van Valkenberg
Nominees not chosen will be held and may be inducted in future years.
Members of the selection committee may also nominate individuals.
Complete submissions must be received by January 30th for consideration for the year submitted.
The Inductee Selection Committee may ask for more detailed documents and information for a submission, which may delay consideration until the following year’s ballot.
The Inductee Selection Committee will attempt to chose an inductee from each of the three categories each year, but that is not a requirement. There may be years when some individuals from one or two categories are selected, or years when more than one person from a single category is selected.
The inductees will be announced the first Monday in April, with a formal induction ceremony and gala later in the Spring.. Individual tickets can be purchased in advance online from the Wisconsin Bike Fed. Sponsorships and corporate table purchases will also be available for the event.
