The Hotter’N Hell Hundred has long been considered the “Ride of Passage” for Texas cyclists. One thing that we have learned over the years is that you will enjoy the experience more if you are well prepared.
As I have been cycling in North Texas I noticed that people who participated in the events leading up to the Hotter’N Hell Hundred were better prepared for the rigors of the wind, heat and hills that give the event its’ name.
In our quest to help you get prepared for the HHH, we present a 4 ride series called the Road to Hotter’N Hell
Are You Ready for a Big Awesome Goal?
Sometimes you need a Big Awesome Goal to get motivated – and this ride fits the bill. The Hotter’N Hell is loaded with challenges – Heat and Wind being the biggest challenges – then they add a few hills in just the right places – and 20+ miles of headwind in the last miles of the 100 mile route. Through the years I have noticed that the people who handle these challenges the best are the people who are out cycling in area rides leading up to the HHH. This little secret motivated me to put together a ride series that would help you get ready for the BIG ride in Wichita Falls.
The Road to Hotter’N Hell is a bundle of 4 small community bike rides that are in the final weeks leading up to the Hotter’N Hell. Each ride in our series features challenging routes and a variety of distances blended with Texas Hospitality. We’ve ridden these rides for decades and know that they are all committed to providing an excellent ride experience. Here’s how it works.
When you register for the RTHH you are automatically registered for all 4 of our featured rides (unless you pick the 3 ride option). Single registrations are available (no tandem registration rate is available). All registrations include one of our Limited Edition Jerseys. After you register for the RTHH Series you will be provided a code and store link to use to order your jersey. We’re even paying the shipping fee so that your jersey is delivered to your home.
Each ride will send you a confirmation so that you can get your packet, t-shirt and other goodies before the ride or on the day of the ride. Here are our featured rides and their scheduled dates:
Peach Pedal July 8, 2023 Weatherford, TX Routes of 8, 28, 38 and 60 miles
Tour de Paris July 15, 2023 Paris, TX Routes of 20, 24, 35, 57, 68 and 80 miles
The Goatneck July 29, 2023 Cleburne, TX Routes of 10, 27, 41 and 70 miles
Blazin’ Saddle 75 August 5, 2023 Granbury, TX Routes of 20, 40, 62 and 75 miles
Here is the jersey design for 2023. Since we are inviting you to join us “on the road, we used a photo of a group that trained for the Hotter’N Hell with me back in 2006. We manipulated the photo to give it an artistic, water color feel.
Here’s how it works. Click our registration link and you will land on our registration page with BikeReg.com
You may select the 4 ride bundle, or the 3 ride bundle. If you select the 3 ride bundle, you will be asked to select the rides you want during the process.
You will be signing waivers for all your rides. You will also select the T-shirt size for each ride and the route distance (you can decide later to ride a longer or shorter route). Please note that the T-shirt size IS NOT your jersey.
Once registration is complete, you will receive a confirmation. Within the confirmation is an explanation for the jersey ordering process. We will provide a link and code that will allow you to order your jersey, with shipping to your address included, at no additional cost. Please make sure that you use the sizing chart provided on the store site so that you order the proper size.
Please note that our jerseys are Custom/Made To Order. We do not have an inventory on hand.
Your jersey will arrive in time for the Peach Pedal.
Additionally, as we approach the ride dates, you will receive a ride confirmation from the individual events.
