Whole lotta bike ridin' going on...

The 2015 UCI Road World Championships descended on Richmond. That's right, the capital city of the Old Dominion. The race is massive. Huge. The race is billed as the "Super Bowl of Cycling" and its riders include current and past Olympians as well as previous winners of the Tour de France. It spans nine days and it brings with it an onslaught of international-traveling fans and media. The local economic impact: $158-million. Whoever wins, the real winner is the city of Richmond. As always, thanks for looking!
