As part of National Bike Safety Month, Hincapie donated funding for bike helmets for students at Saluda Elementary School. Saluda Elementary School allows Hincapie to use their field each year as a location for a rest stop during Greenville’s Gran Fondo Hincapie, so Hincapie wanted to show their appreciation for the school’s generosity. After donating the funding, Chris Young of Adventure Cycles facilitated the purchase of 12 Kali Protectives bicycle helmets at cost. The helmets were given to deserving students whose names were drawn from a hat.
“It’s always important for us to give back to the communities who support cycling,” says Rich Hincapie. “We’re extremely fortunate to be able to host the flagship Gran Fondo Hincapie ride here in our own home town.”
