The 2016 Hotter’N Hell Hundred Endurance Ride will be Saturday, Aug. 27, 2016. We will have Mountain Bike Racing on Friday, August 26, 2016 and USA Cycling Criterium races on Friday, ... moreAugust 26th and Sunday, August 28, 2016. We will host the Hotter’N Hell Hundred, USA Cycling Road Races on Saturday, August 27, 2016. Sunday morning HHH will host the half marathon trail run that makes up the final third of the weekend Triple Threat Extreme Challenge. For those that are interested in the Trail Run but not a half marathon, Sandy will also offer a 10k on the WeeChiTah Trail.

The Hotter’N Hell Hundred celebrated its 34th annual ride in 2015. The event was a huge success with over 13,000 registered participants along with the largest Consumer Show and Finish Line Village in the history of the HHH.

The Hotter’N Hell Hundred grew out of efforts to find a special way for Wichita Falls to celebrate its centennial in 1982. Roby Christie of the Wichita Falls Bicycle Club proposed a bicycle ride – 100 miles in 100 degree heat to celebrate 100 years. The original HHH committee promoted the idea as a unique and fitting event to honor the spirit of Texoma and the people who first settled the area. A consulting company from New York City had proposed a rocking chair marathon, but after lengthy discussion the Centennial Committee agreed with the HHH committee that early settlers were not rocking chair people. Gritty people capable of riding 100 miles in Texoma heat was a more fitting symbol of the tenacity of our early settlers. Mark and Jo-Alice Davis, now of Weatherford Texas, coined the name, Hotter’N Hell Hundred. The rest is Hotter’N Hell History. Some of the original committee members have moved on but Roby and many others remain involved in planning and implementing the event in each of its now 34 years. The committee started with 7 people and is now in excess of 100.

During the first year of HHH, there were 1200 riders. Endurance cycling was relatively new to Texas but 1200 riders celebrated the first year as the largest single day 100-mile ride in the nation. The HHH committee has been a constant pupil in the school of hard knocks. Rest stops during the first year were operated by members of the Good Sam’s RV Club. On-board water, toilets and built-in shade made these RV land yachts appear to be the perfect mobile rest stop. The bicycling event emptied the water tanks, filled the toilet tanks and wore out the small crew of volunteers. Tired or not, the Good Sam’s remained an important part of road support for many years.

Ever wonder where the CamelBak hydration pack originated? Well, it was at the 1988 Hotter’N Hell Hundred right here in Wichita Falls, Texas! Click on the link to visit their site.http://www.camelbak.com/Sports-Recreation/About-Us/Our-Story.aspx

The early years of medical support would be a nightmare for current day medical volunteers. There was one medical unit at the finish line. Nowadays there are MASH units at each rest stop and at the finish. Medical volunteers treat everything from bees embedded in rider’s ears, to emu bites, road rash, under hydration, over hydration and hard landings.

The Hotter’N Hell grew geometrically for several years. The Hotter’N Hell Hundred is still the largest single day 100 mile bicycle ride in the nation – and one of the largest in the world. In 2015 more than 13,000 registrants again participated in the Hotter’N Hell Hundred weekend events.

The moment you reach the 243 ft peak of the Harbor Bridge and begin your descend towards the shoreline you realize this isn’t just a ride–from this point on, it will forever become ... morean annual tradition.

Conquer the Coast packs so much into one ride that no other cycling event quite compares. The ride begins at 7:30 a.m. in the heart of Corpus Christi’s Sports, Entertainment and Arts District (Bayfront Park, Corpus Christi, TX 78401). See some of the regions most iconic views, an award-winning art museum and the awe-inspiring watergardens. Your trek up the Harbor Bridge gives you a bird’s eye view of the Corpus Christi Ship Channel and the nation’s 5th largest port to your left. On your right you’ll see a National Landmark, the USS LEXINGTON and the Texas State Aquariums. All with the expansive Corpus Christi Bay as the backdrop where you survey the very coast you set out to conquer.

Here, your adventure has only begun as you continue to make your way through all the picturesque towns that line the shores of Corpus Christi Bay. Portland, Aransas Pass, Ingleside and Port Aransas all offer their own unique flair to the Coastal Bend and promise spectacular views along the way. The Port Aransas Ferry connects you to Mustang & Padre Island where the true test begins. Some call it the “Toughest 18 Miles in Texas” as this stretch of Mustang Island is what it’s all about. It’s what separates the joy riders from the cyclists. A unique opportunity to ride through the Naval Air Station Corpus Christi. A quick jump across the Intercoastal Waterway and you hit Ocean Drive: easily one of the most scenic drives in all of Texas.
