The Hilly Hundred is my favorite bike ride of the season!
It’s like the bookend marking the end of my summer riding season.
Two days of hills… two days of fun… with thousands of riders!

Some seasonal beauty from the weekend…

Saturday morning was chilly – but the sun warmed it up quickly.
The day’s ride was crisp & clear – with long sleeves & gloves.
Sunday started with frost on our tents… the chilly morning
wiped out some of the few prairie flowers remaining!

But the day got warmer as we ended up riding in shorts & short-sleeve jerseys!

After a long day of riding on Sunday… it’s time for a long drive home.
Enjoyable when your view through the car window is this…

And for those of you who like to see the details…
here’s a small snipet of the daily cue sheets showing elevation gain
for each day – over 3,000 feet of elevation gain daily!
