The Hot Tamale is a beautiful, flat ride in north central Ohio., with 9, 19, 33, and 66 mile options. Riders on the 19, 33, and 66 mile routes will visit the beautiful King’s Mill covered bridge, while the 66 mile cyclists will also have a chance to enjoy the Tallgrass Trail. The route meanders along quiet farm roads and through charming small towns. Helmets are mandatory. Again this year we will offer child-sized t-shirts.
