Hotter'n-Hell 100

We are in Wichita Falls Texas for the big annual bike race. My wife is doing the triple threat. The 100 mile, trail race and the run.

Very impressive!!. Last month we were at the grand canyon where I did the "speed hike" down Bright Angel and back. A real challenge at my age (63) even though I am quite fit and run about 75 miles a month. Next month we are returning to GC so I can do the Rim-To River-To Rim speed hike, about 21 miles in one day. This event is just a good excuse to spend several more days at one of our favorite destinations.

I have not done that ride myself but every one of my biking friends have and loved it. Mass starts, just when you hear every one clip up are very exciting. Having an Airstream to sleep in will help. It is hard to find a place to stay.

Saw 1 other AS buried in amongst the forest of Sob's. We camped over by the river where there was shade.

As former media director of HHH, i can only say if you are a serious cyclist or just love the throngs of people, it's something you should experience at least once

Wow, that's fantastic! Just wondering here, but do those "semi-pro" cyclists wear the gel-padded shorts? (I guess I'm wondering if I am a whimp, as we do wear the gel-padded shorts!!)

No, they all do... Still after 100 miles you can get very saddle sore.
