What’s going on?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Hotter’N Hell started back in 1982. It was an “extreme sport” before we even coined the word. Who would think that a 100 mile bicycle ride in 100 degree heat would attract over 10,000 people every year. I discovered this ride in 1987 and have been attending and participating ever since. Lots of people ask me why?

Why Ride?

That’s a fair question. The first answer is Challenge. I like a good challenge, especially one that is challenging on many levels. Heat. Distance. Wind. Strategically placed hills. The second answer is camaraderie. I love seeing the people who put the event together and work so hard to take good care of the rides. I also like seeing the people who ride, many of whom have become friends over the years. Finally, I’m crazy and I like to spend time around other crazy people.

Are you thinking about riding in the Hotter’N Hell? If you are, or if you have participated in the event and struggled in the past, I’ve got several ways to help you have a good experience at the HHH. Please check out the options below and let’s get ready for the Texas Ride of Passage – The Hotter’N Hell.

Train on Your Own

I know that lots of people out there  plan to ride in the HHH but don’t have a coach or a training plan. We developed a FREE training plan called the Road to Hotter’N Hell to help you get ready. Our plan provides a list of organized group rides that you can use as your longer rides, including suggested distances depending upon your HHH goal. We include some basic tips on how to round out your training to make sure your are ready when August 25 arrives. Get all the information here.

Sometimes, when you take on a big experience or something new, a guide can help you get more from your experience. This is why we developed our Ride Guide program. We put an emphasis on the last 5 weeks leading up to the HHH, blending indoor training sessions with longer rides on Saturday. Sign up NOW and you can get more time riding and training with us.  Individuals who join our program receive a lot of special goodies in addition to the training plan and activities. Details here.

Our Ride Guides will lead 5 different Pace Packs: 19mph, 17mph and 15mph on the 100 mile route plus 17mph and 15mph on the 62 mile route. These Pace Packs will be utilizing  select rest stops on their routes. Our Ride Guides will assist the group in managing the ride safely while providing guidance to keep the group pace.
