George Hincapie

Seventeen. It’s the name of George’s fabulous restaurant in his boutique hotel, Domestique, the designation for the rider who paves the way for Tour champions. Oh, the seventeen? George’s world record for the most Tour de France appearances. George Hincapie is The Cliffs Director of Cycling and your host and guide for part of our inaugural tour. George has partnered with The Cliffs to develop special programs for our members, leading private rides throughout the year. We invite you to join in the fun and see all that’s in store here and for some of the best riding in America.
