Today is the Hotter’n Hell Hundred Bike Race in Wichita Falls, Texas. It’s the largest sanctioned century ride in the country. The event draws over 15,000 riders and spectators.
Wichita Falls is northwest of Dallas, up near the Oklahoma border.
Now, let me get this straight. It’s late August…in Texas…and people are going to get on bikes and ride 100 miles. In the daytime.
I’ve got to tell you, there are some tough things going on in my life right now. But, the one thing I’m not going to be doing is getting on a damn bicycle in 150 degree heat and riding 100 miles.
I know it isn’t the weekend yet, but let’s have a beer.
