Being from the Hell that is also called Wichita Falls, I have my friends and family that have done it. It is difficult on any level but when the Mercury is boiling over 100 it is just a suicide mission.
Aww it's not that bad..
2016 was the first time I rode the hundred, and again in 17. In 18 I did the 100K road race, 19 I did the 100K ride, but also did the Cat 4 criterium race, then this year with work, I had zero will power to fart with riding at all.
The 100K race was a ton of fun, we averaged like 24/25mph nearly the whole way. I think I know some of the guys who pull the 100mi pace group so I'm planning on jumping in with them, currently however none of my bibs fit right lol.
