George and Rich Hincapie Found Worldwide Cycling Club

The Hincapie Cycling Society encourages community and camaraderie through the sport of cycling

A cycling club that includes cyclists George Hincapie, Christian Vande Velde, and Bobby Julich? Yea, this isn’t your local bike shop club.

Hincapie Cycling Society (HCS) is the brainchild of brothers George and Rich Hincapie, inspired from the guidance they received from their own hometown cycling club growing up in Queens.

“The guys on that club taught us the fundamentals of racing,” says Rich. “More importantly, they guided us to be good teammates and people. They felt a personal responsibility for us.”

It is Rich and George’s hope that HCS will provide the same sort of guidance and inspiration to new and experienced cyclists that they received growing up. But they don’t want to limit the club to their current hometown area of Greenville, South Carolina. Instead, they aim to create a virtual cycling club that would be the hub for cyclists of all ages and skill levels—a place where a cyclist can seek advice, join an online challenge (the platform integrates with Strava), and find inspiration.

A key component of HCS is the group of Hincapie Sportswear Ambassadors, located all across the United States, Canada, Mexico, and South America. These Ambassadors will lead local rides and facilitate connections within the Society. To kick off the launch of the Society, George Hincapie himself will be leading a 25-mile ride out of Birds Fly South Brewery in Greenville, S.C. on October 5.

The HCS Standard Membership is free. Potential members only need to sign up online, and then they’ll have access to the entire Hincapie cycling community. There they’ll be able to connect with other HCS members, get tips from the pros, and compete in HCS-hosted online cycling challenges.

For $225, members may upgrade the membership to Premium, which includes an exclusive HCS cycling kit and swag, as well as thousands of dollars of discounts from leaders in the cycling industry like Smith Optics and Giro. The 2018 membership is available now, and it lasts through December 31, 2018.
