KDS Commercial Properties is proud to be the commercial real estate advisor for Hincapie Sportswear and was pleased to be able to represent George and Rich Hincapie in the recent acquisition of the La Bastide Hotel and Vineyards in Travelers Rest, SC. For years George and Rich have ridden past this French country inn and vineyard nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. They had always talked about how one day they would love to open a similar facility and combine it with their love of cycling — and now fate his given them their chance. The Inn is located at the start of the best riding in the southeast, with great weather and a vast variety of roads at the base of the mountains.
On October 27, 2012 at La Bastide, join George Hincapie and cycling stars of the past, present and future on a ride celebrating George’s retirement after 19 years as a professional cyclist. View the leaves changing from one season to the next as George leads cyclists along the same roads he has ridden on training for races like the Tour de France and the Paris-Roubaix. After completing the ride, join family and friends for a fun festival on the picturesque 30 acres surrounding the La Bastide hotel. Complete with live music, cold beer, and rides for the kids, this festival is a great way to cap off the day. In keeping with George and Rich’s support for their community, the net proceeds of the event will be contributed to Meals On Wheels of Greenville.
