From September 19-September 27th Richmond will host the UCI World Road Cycling Championships. Ladies and Gentlemen this is the World Cup of cycling and an event that is great for the entire family!

The World Road Championships is cycling’s pinnacle event, which is held annually in an international city chosen by the Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) through a competitive bidding process similar to the Olympic Games.

This will be a nine day event, featuring 12 Championship races for Elite Men and Women and Junior Men and Women. The athletes come from around the world and they will be competing right here in Richmond. This event will be covered by more than 500 media outlets from around the world and will be broadcast live on NBC12 and NBC Sports Net.

I know you have heard that Richmond is expecting 450,000 people, but please understand that that number is spread out over the entire course, over nine days and that number includes you!!! There is more than enough room and parking for everyone who wants to attend.

Enjoy the food, fun and festival atmosphere that will make this one of the best Richmond events ever.
