Packet Pickup

As a Hincapie Cycling Society member, you can bypass the line at Packet Pickup. We’ll have your packet waiting for you at a designated HCS Members Only area. Yea, you’re important.

Meet George Hincapie

HCS members are a part of the Hincapie Family. Which means at every Fondo, you’ll have time to hang out with your family. The Friday prior to the ride, we’ll make sure you have time with George Hincapie, as well as the other Hincapie ambassadors.

Priority Staging

Wear your Hincapie Cycling Society kit, and you’ll have access to the HCS Start Corral at the start line. Bypass the riders and get your spot behind the VIPs.

Gran Fondo Training Plans

Free Plan with HCS Membership

Hincapie Cycling Society members receive complimentary Gran Fondo Hincapie training plans from Nick Mossing, USAC Level 3 Coach at Attack Cycling. The plan includes two workouts per week for 12 weeks, and general guidance on preparing for the ride. Members are also welcome to join weekly HCS Power Hour Zwift rides and weekend HCS rides aimed at fondo training.

When you become an HCS member, you’ll be able to request your free plan from Nick Mossing. The plan will be shared from TrainingPeaks, and you’ll be able to easily export your plan to your computer or training application. Basic accounts are free and easy to setup.

You will also be added to a closed Facebook group that will provide a forum for training tips and support.
