NBC12 VIEWPOINT: Richmond 2015 Is Here Let’s Ride!!!!

The biggest event this year, next to the Pope coming to America, will be Richmond 2015 the UCI World Road Cycling Championships and it starts this week!

A few weeks ago we talked about the UCI Championships and I described it as the Olympics of Cycling. After seeing all of the preparations that the city and the region have made for this fast paced and exiting event, I am convinced that it will live up to its billing.

Even if you have no interest in cycling or big events, this is an event that you do not want to miss.

For ten days, starting with the Opening Ceremonies on Brown's Island on Friday September 19 until the finals on Sunday September 27, you and your family will have the opportunity to witness an international sport in your own backyard.

Come on, this is world class and it doesn't get any better than that. For many of us, this will truly be a once in a lifetime opportunity.

NBC12 is proud is be an official partner of Richmond 2015 and we will keep you up to date each day on everything you need to know about Richmond 2015.

For information about race schedules and all of the fun activities go to: NBC12.com/Richmond2015 and Richmond 2015.com

My family and I will be there and I hope to see you too!!!
