2015 UCI Road World Championships
|Host city||Richmond, Virginia|
|Date(s)||19–27 September 2015|
- Richmond, Virginia, United States
- Richmond announced its bid to host these championships at an official press conference on 21 December 2010.
- Oman 
- Quebec City, Quebec, Canada
- Quebec City bid for these championships after being encouraged by Pat McQuaid, president of the UCI. Quebec City was the only Canadian city that entered a bid by Cycling Canada's deadline of 7 November 2010. In 2011 Quebec City withdrew, citing the high cost of hosting the event ($20 million).
On September 21, 2011, Richmond was selected as host. The event will be held September 19-27, 2015.
An UCI official inspected the courses in December 2013. The courses will be officially announced around February 2014.
All the races will finish downtown Richmond on Broad Street, where the last few hundred meters are relatively flat. The lead-up in the final kilometers will be a bit uphill. Each lap of the 10-mile road circuit will contain a number of short, challenging climbs. Each lap of the circuit contains about 400 feet of climbing and includes cobbles.
The courses will be used in competition during the national collegiate championships between 2-4 May 2014.
