Cheer on the Cyclists at the 2015 Bike Virginia Tour

“Set your cycling goals high, and don’t stop till you get there.” –Felicity Luckey Cycling is a fantastic cardio exercise. There’s a reason spinning classes are so popular, right? However, nothing beats a ride out on the road, especially when you have great company, gorgeous scenery, and a friendly air of competition. If you follow cycling competitions, then chances are, you’ve heard of George Hincapie: “He competed in a record 17 Ronde van Vlaanderen races and finished second at the grueling Paris-Roubaix, the best ever for any American.
