The Tejas 500 mile time trial race is a RAAM Qualifier. This is our longest event and it will have (3) different start times. The 48-Hour start, takes off on Thursday 6:00 pm, then ... morea 42-hour start (6 hours later) at Midnight and also a 36-hour start at 6:00 am Friday. The object is to have all the riders and teams finish about the same time for dinner and the Awards Bash Saturday evening.

The staggered start times make for an exciting event injecting new riders onto the course. This introduction of new riders to the course adds to the excitement of each event and will work to keep riders already out on the course fired-up. All events will end in time for the Awards Ceremony. The Awards Ceremony is a fun place to meet other riders, eat and pick up trophies. With riders from most of the states in the USA and from other countries, the Awards Bash was also an unbelievable reunion (see past rider list on website) of old and new friends.

The course is a scenic and challenging 26.5 mile loop. Crews can “hand off” to their riders from the start-finish area, each lap. This venue also allows riders to “crew themselves” from the trunk of their own car, negating the need for an expensive “follow entourage”. The start-finish is a fun place for your crew and/or resting team riders to congregate and allows for a pleasant social atmosphere. Bring the family for a fun-filled day at the races! Riders, crews and teams are encouraged to pitch tents in the park under the large trees creating a tent city with a personality all its own.

If 500 miles sounds too challenging, try a four-person team. Team riders seem to make a party out of this event every year! The Texas Time Trials has become more than just a great internationally-known event; it’s a fun-filled ride, a reunion that brings RAAM legends, newbies, randonneurs and world-class Ultra racers together in a social setting to celebrate our ability to ride. This is a great event for the seasoned racer or someone wanting to try their first race.

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.

Our organization has been around since 1982, and our un-duplicated services serve over 6,000 clients each year, providing them with the care and access they need to live safely and as independently as possible.This non-competitive ride will be structured for the young and young at heart to get their blood pumping and legs moving in honor of our clients who strive daily to maintain their independence and dignity through our services.

Family Eldercare offers many different programs to serve the needs of our clients. Our 6,000 clients are assisted through our impressive programs, such as Money Management, Guardianship, In-Home Care, Counseling, and Veteran's Fiduciary Services. Family Eldercare's services are greatly needed in Central Texas and a vast majority of our programs are completely un-duplicated, making our mission critically important to the health and well-being of the ever-increasing senior population in our area.

Consider making the trip to Seguin, Texas in 2016 to honor our beloved pastor, father, husband and friend, David Eikenburg, who died tragically in a cycling accident on July 11, 2005. ... moreHe died doing what he loved, but his first love and passion was to share the love of Jesus. Every year we honor him with this bike ride, remembering what he loved, and then to glorify God by continuing David's legacy and passion for spreading the Good News to people everywhere. Proceeds go to Trinity Oaks.

The date for our 11th annual ride will be held Saturday July 16, 2016. You can get involved even if you don't cycle. We are always in need of donations and volunteers, so please let us know if you would be interested in serving God through this ministry.

Rest stops will be located every 10-15 miles on each route. They will be stocked with water, gatorade, fruit, pickles, cookies and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. You are sure to be greeted with a smile and encouraging words to get you through the rest of your ride. Rest Stops will be open until the last rider of the group has made it through to that particular rest stop.

Our Good Samaritans (SAG wagons) will patrol the routes to transport riders in need to either the next available rest stop or back to the church. There will be a mechanic at the church available to fix minor bicycle repairs before the ride starts. Please be prepared to fix your own flats. Air pumps will be available at each rest stop.

At 4:00 pm we will do a final street sweep to pick up any riders that are still on the route and have not made it back to the church yet. This is to ensure a safe return to the church for all riders.

Homemade breakfast tacos will be provided for all riders before the ride starting at 6:00 am. After you have completed your designated route, we will also provide a free lunch for all riders beginning at 11:00 am. Rest assure you will not go home hungry.
