Richmond 2015

What plans are you all making? Driving, touring, or both? Are you going to visit other locations, like DC, historical sites or other sporting events? Which areas of Virginia are you interested in: the mountains, piedmont, or coast?

I have no plans to visit Richmond or any area of Virginia. Why do you ask?

UCI WORLD Road Racing Championship

I should come up & visit all my '70s-early 80's haunts, NoVa, Blacksburg & Charlottesville; although I'm sure they've all changed too much.

I don't see where anyone answered you, but Richmond 2015 refers to the World Bike Championships. Probably going to be kind of a BIG deal for the cycling community.

My boss (who grew up in VA) says the only good thing in Richmond is the Museum of the Confederacy. But I wouldn't mind going up for a road race.

As are most capital cities, Richmond aint the bestest of cities (Sacramento comes to mind also), but it is loaded with history, and there are sections that are most worthy, like Carytown, and the west end of the city. Oh, and if you are a Redskins (are they still called that?) fan, their training came is in Richmond. BEST thing about Richmond is Richmond 2015!

I live in Richmond and am happy to meet up for a ride around the city for those of you coming here in 2015 (or I can just send you some routes and places to stop). We have some beautiful routes that mix a little urban and country road riding. PM me if interested.

Hi all! Coming out of a long bikeforums hiatus to answer this thread. I've lived just outside Richmond for 15 years, and I have to tell you that it has changed a lot in that time. Yes, its reputation was as a dingy, backwater, racist, murder capital. Well, crime is down, culture is up, hipsters are everywhere, craft beer is flowing, and Richmond is embracing cycling like it never has before. We're kind of becoming the Portland of the east coast. There are new paths and bike lanes popping up all over town, as well as really spectacular, challenging MTB trails right along the James River.

So if you're at all interested in UCI, come on up/down in 2015 and see what Richmond is all about. You will be surprised.

I had the opportunity to race on that course at Collegiate Road Nationals this year. It was so awesome. You HAVE to watch the race at Libby Hill. It's the cobbled climb and the highlight of the course. Beautiful neighborhood and it'll be the place to be for watching. Party all day long.
