So for those of you who are unfamiliar with the Hilly Hundred here in Indiana here are a few pictures from the scene.
Take note of all the other riders on route. It's like one super long paceline for the entire 50 miles of the route. It's pretty unbelievable.
For first timers to this ride there are surprisingly some very nice and scenic roads, that do in fact have a few hills. This is pretty much the only tour that is not a race that I do all year. I like to think of this particular weekend as the weekend when I start focusing on the upcoming season.
Here is the Hilly Hundred's profile for the Sunday ride.
Some of you may wonder why all this info on this particular ride and why do you seem so pumped for it. Well you have to do it to really understand why. Also it always comes after my break from riding my bike, so after a couple of weeks of that there is no better ride around to get back on the bike.
In a few years though I would love to see my ride grow. Last year we had a total of 3 and I hope to improve on that number. The more the merrier. Nobody "should" be left behind on my ride, as it is a ride and not a race. Let's have some fun.
