Registration opens 7am,
Ride begins at 8 a.m.
The Hot Tamale is a beautiful, flat ride in north central Ohio., with 8, 16, 32, and 62 mile options. Riders on the 32 and 62 mile routes will visit Ohio's newest covered bridge, while the 62 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.
How Do I Sign Up?
On-line registration is now open, or you can download an application and mail it in. We also accept registrations on the day of the ride, but you can save money by registering early. If you would like to save time at registration, you can print a day of ride application, complete it at home, and bring 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.
