In the past 7 days, Utah Valley has hosted 2 very big events in cycling!
Hotter Than Heck Century which took place on Saturday (August 2nd) in Lehi. It was hosted at the Adobe building and included teams and individuals from throughout Utah (and even some from out of state). The ride is a 30 year old tradition and event organizers made special effort to step it up this year. The cyclists rode either 30, 60 or 100 miles (individually or in teams) around Utah Lake. The rest stops featured a plethora of fruits and sports drinks to keep the riders well-fueled for the long, hot ride. Upon returning, cyclists were given a completion metal and a meal catered by Iceberg.
