One of Hincapie's favorite places to hit the trails is in the Pisgah National Forest, in the neighboring state of North Carolina, and it's not just because he lives 30 minutes away. "The trails there are world class trails. It's singletrack, all wooded, and you can climb for 10 to 15 km at a time. There's Dupont State Forest there as well. They stand out."
