Thanks for a great ride Saturday. I’m sure behind the scenes things were not as smooth as they appeared to me, a rider. But from my point of view, this was a perfect ride and event.
From the ease of checking in, to the preride snacks, to the lead out, to the well marked route to the aid stations, to the finish line, and the food and refreshments …. all perfect.
I really don’t ķnow how much work goes into such an event, but I do know that if it runs smoothly from a riders prospective, there has been a LOT of effort in the planning and execution. Thank you for all the hard work and for keeping us safe.
Please thank your teams and your sponsors for all they did.
Thank you for putting on a fantastic ride on Saturday – It was hot and it was fast but it was the best supported ride and with the friendliest people at every aid station and every stop.
Well signed, well organised and an amazing day.
I will definitely be back next year.
Top Notch event. Did the 71, with a quick round-about the campus — apparently I missed a turn. I signed up for the Century but felt I just wasn’t ready for the heat. There is always next time.
The event was outstanding and the volunteers, sponsors and cause really made this a class act. I learned how nice an ice cold towel with scented ammonia feels and it actually makes a difference in both temperature control and breathing.
Thank you all and congratulations to all Riders. I saw some pretty bad falls and pray everyone is ok.
This was my first Hot Hundred and I am hooked. The volunteers really make this event. Great event all around. Thanks for all the hard work. It truly is appreciated.
Wow, what a ride !!!! It was a day that I will never forget. Cheaha was tough as they come, Tour de Blue was very challenging but The Hot Hundred… OMG !!!!!! The heat, some of the roads, riding by myself for the last 25 miles… Ugh…The only way I finished was the support of the DCH Sports Trainers!!!!!!!! Ice Towels
The Hot Hundred was also special because I got to ride with my son Kyle who completed his 1st Century…. Many thanks to the Alabama Backroads Cycling Series and Pixie Hicks for making these special moments possible. Thanks to all the volunteers at the rest stops, the SAG team, the orgaganizers, sponsors , photographers (Rose)’the awesome riders I have gotten to know and the inventor of the ICE TOWEL !!!!! See you at Tannehill !!!!!
We are so appreciative of the vast support from sponsors of and participants in the 2015 Hot Hundred Bicycle Ride held on July 25th. This 13th Anniversary ride welcomed 614 registered riders, including 308 Century Riders and Wounded Warriors Ft. Benning! We received numerous compliments onsite and on our Facebook fan page, praising the friendly and competent volunteer staff at each of our 5 rest stops and at the UREC headquarters.
We had excellent community participation this year. Over 100 volunteers contributed their time and energy to making the ride an outstanding event, in addition to more than 25 businesses and organizations that provided in-kind donations or direct financial sponsorship of the event.
We are so grateful for all of this support and will begin planning for 2016 soon!!!
