Richmond 2015: Cycling Championship!

Whether you're a cyclist in this city or not, this is some HUGE news for everyone! Richmond has been selected to host the World Road Cycling Championship, an event that is televised worldwide and at the caliber of the Tour de France! The nine day event will take place in September 2015 and is expected to draw thousands of international spectators, create over $130 million in revenue, and be viewed by 450 million people across the world - that's some serious publicity for the River City!

So if you can just hang tight for another four years, this event is sure to knock your socks off!
