The concept of a modern classic is somewhat of an oxymoron. Conjuring images of nostalgia, rich history against that of pushing into the modern world that cycling is continually becoming. Something James Bond-esque comes to mind, a nod to the old whilst making way for future technology and sleek design. The idea of this ride was somewhat the same. The infamous “hincapie” loop is both a classic ride going back many cycling era’s which contrasts to the modern day where all kinds of newfangled and expensive bikes can be seen taking on this route on the regular. The name of the route comes from the lesser - known George Hincapie, Lance Armstrong’s right hand man. This loop was coined the Hincapie loop as one of the classic training loops of the two americans.
