The City of Greenville has dedicated a newly completed section of the Swamp Rabbit Trail to George Hincapie in recognition of the contributions that George and Hincapie Sportswear have made to the cycling and business communities in South Carolina. The "Hincapie Path" is now open and being used by cyclists and pedestrians for recreation and commuting in George's hometown of Greenville, SC.

Once completed, the Swamp Rabbit Trail will be a 22-mile greenway that parallels the Reedy River from Travelers Rest to Lake Conestee. Some portions of the trail follow abandoned railroad corridors while other sections meander through wooded flood plains. The Hincapie Path section of the Swamp Rabbit Trail is a continuation of the trail system south of downtown Greenville, Falls Park and Cleveland Park. George made a statement at the dedication ceremony and led the first ride on the Hincapie Path.

"I'm proud to have the trail named after me," said Hincapie. "I love living in Greenville and I’m really proud of the city for developing these trails. People want a safe place to ride and be outside, and trails like this are an important part of our community."
