Your 2014 Favorites: My First Hilly Hundred! by Ben Matthews

Saturday, October 18, 2014 by Customers, Friends and Fans of Bicycle Garage Indy
This year was my first year riding and volunteering with CIBA’s Hilly Hundred Weekend! What a great experience! After volunteering with registration Friday evening and Saturday morning, I got to ride the Hilly Hundred with my dad. I commute to work by bike almost everyday, and I had ridden a 200 km brevet back in May with Indiana Randonneurs, so I felt fairly confident in being able to handle the hills. The weather was cool, but the scenery was gorgeous! I rode my steel frame Raliegh Port Townsend touring bike, and she did not let me down. I look foward to making Hilly Hundred an annual tradition and riding more brevets!
