Hotter'N Hell Hundred— Wichita Falls, Texas

This race began nearly 33 years ago when Wichita Falls Bicycle Club member Roby Christie came up with the idea to ride 100 miles in 100-degree heat as a way to celebrate the city’s centennial in 1982. Now the largest single day 100-mile ride in the U.S., last year the event attracted more than 12,500 participants. Texas local Mike Merril, who has completed the race twice before, says the course provides a very flat ride, and avid cyclist Rick Ankrum offers a detailed account of the race on his blog
