Riders Survive the ups and Downs of SBC Travels' Hilly Hundred Trip

A sign welcomes SBC cyclists on Sunday as they encounter the steepest climb of the weekend of the Hilly Hundred, an event starting in Ellettsville, Indiana, that featured routes of approximately 50 miles of hills on each of two days. There were many climbs other than Mount Tabor as well, including those that were much longer.

While Sunday saw comfortable fall weather, rain poured all day on Saturday, leaving only a handful of cyclists to take on the wind, cold, and rain.
