In Bucks County this September, there's some very serious world-class cycling going on...and some not so serious cycling, too! Sunday, September 8th marks the 16th annual Thompson Bucks County Classic, with Lexus as the official vehicle. Pro-men and Pro-Women from around the world will descend on beautiful Bucks County to compete in what has become an extremely competitive, exciting, and lucrative bike race that completes the USA Cycling Pro Road Tour.
