Pre-Registration for the Hilly Hundred

Ruben Watson of the Tampa Bay freewheelers wants everyone to know that then pre-registration deadline for the Hilly Hundred bicycle ride is Sunday - 10/19.

TBF is pleased to put on the 2008 HillyHundred ride on October 26. As many of you are aware, the ride is in memory of Josh Kuck who was struck and killed in an accident on the ride 1 year ago. A portion of the proceeds from the ride will be donated to a memorial fund set up in the name of Josh Kuck. There will be an opportunity to donate directly to the Josh Kuck Memorial Scholarship fund at the registration table on the day of the ride.

The HillyHundred is made up of four ride distances of 18, 34, 63 or 100 miles. The ride offers a short-sleeved t-shirt, fully stocked SAG stops, mechanical support, and some door prize giveaways from our supporting cycling businesses. If you have participated in our annual Strawberry Century Ride, please keep in mind that this is our "no frills" ride and the tasty strawberry shortcakes are not part of this ride (mark your calendar for the Strawberry Century on March 29, 2009).

Pre-registration deadline is October 19 and the ride cost remains at $22 (no artificial increase due to economic conditions like gas prices!). You are guaranteed a t-shirt if you pre-register by October 19.

Visit us at for additional event details and to register online. Please note that day-of-ride registration is $25 and you are NOT guaranteed a t-shirt if you register on day-of-ride. We do order some extra ride t-shirts and these are given out on a first-come, first-served basis until no longer available.

In town on Saturday AM? If so, come join us on our Stanley ride (free for everyone). Details on our TBF website: (Click the "Rides" tab.)

Please contact me if you have any additional questions at 813-404-5721 or if you'd prefer to register via mail.

Thanks and see you on the ride... Ruben.
