Joe Saling - Inducted 2016

Joe Saling wears many hats in the world of cycling. From racer, to club organizer, to announcer, he simply is a contributor to the sport. Saling began cycling back in 1956 and helped the now Valley Preferred Cycling Center take its first step as he was there on opening night for the first race. Over the decades, Saling has earned 20 national championships, six Masters Pan-American championships and eight Masters World Cup championships, just to highlight some of the hardware the New Jersey native has accumulated. Arguably his biggest contributions have come off the track as he, along with his wife Dottie, have been the driving force behind the success and longevity of the Somerset Wheelman, one of the most historic bicycling clubs in the country. Additionally, Saling announces more than 25 events each year, just adding to his impressive resume behind the microphone, which includes multiple national championships as well as Pan-American and Olympic trials. Regardless of what hat, or helmet, he was wearing on that particular day, Saling is known as an ambassador to the sport.
