Growing number of cyclists join the Hincapie Cycling Society
The Hincapie Cycling Society is a fast growing online community of cyclists who share a passion for the road
George and Rich Hincapie founded Hincapie Cycling Society to encourage community and camaraderie through the sport of cycling. George and Rich, who both began racing when they were eight, grew up under the mentorship of their father Ricardo, as well as their hometown cycling club in New York City. They credit many of those members with teaching them the foundations for cycling, racing, and being good teammates.
This experience with their own hometown cycling club inspired the Hincapie brothers to found their own cycling society, in hopes that they can provide the same sort of guidance that they received growing up. In addition to an online platform that integrates with Strava to allow for cycling challenges, the Society also provides a way for members to connect with area Hincapie Sportswear Ambassadors, who located all across the United States, Canada, Mexico, and South America. These Ambassadors lead local rides and facilitate connections within the Society.
The online challenges have proven to be quite popular for the members. These challenges are available for anyone who signs up for a basic, free Society membership, and winners receive a variety of Hincapie swag.
Congratulations to the latest challenge winners!
