Well this year its name will most certainly likely be fitting. We are at 30 something days now and on track to break the record for most days 100+ in the dfw area. Yesterday I think it made 110.

Today we are at 107*. This makes for an unhappy Britney.

Ha I only just heard of this ride recently yes I would be tottaly the kind of nut to try it I LOVE riding in crazy hot humid weather. I wonder though do you have to be a member of a team to ride or or an individual?

Hotter than Hell usually isn't humid, but it is usually very hot. Starts early in the morning and if I recall correctly there is a location you have to make by a certain time or you are pulled off the course. Why? They don't want to treat you for heat stroke.

And I don't want them treating me for one either! Strokes do some serious damage, I don't think people realize it either. I'd rather have a heart attack.

If you don't ride in the heat here...you don't ride. I am going to Hotter n Hell and it will be my first century. I rode the Blazing Saddles 75 (got twisted around at one point and ended up doing 87 miles) Thirty miles into that ride I no longer feared Wichita Falls, the heat nor the wind. If you can do Blazing Saddles which is a Very Challenging course especially if you don't have a granny gear Hotter n Hell is a breeze. Except for a few hills it is said to be basically pancake flat. Just a boatload of people there. But if you are doing the 100 and have lights on your bike they are letting you go at 6:15 this year and Hells Gate is set to close at noon. So plenty of time to get there.
