The Hot Tamale is a beautiful, flat ride in north central Ohio. The 2014 route will be announced soon. Expert riders can choose a 62 mile loop along scenic farm roads. The route meanders along quiet farm roads and through charming small towns. Some riders will choose to enjoy our 34 mile route, while families and casual riders may prefer the 8 or 16 mile options. Helmets are mandatory. Again this year we will offer child-sized t-shirts.
How Do I Sign Up?
Online will open in about April, 2014, and registration forms will be available on-line before then. We do accept day or ride registrations. As mentioned below, you have the option of printing a day of ride registration form, filling it out at home, and bringing it with you.
The ride begins in the Waldo Community Park in Waldo, Ohio. Waldo is on US Route 23, between Delaware and Marion, Ohio. If entering Waldo from Rt. 23, turn left at the BP station and right at G & R restaurant. The park is about 1/2 mile ahead on the left. Just follow the signs! Click here for a map.
