CHILLY HILLY
Today's ride through southern Indiana's hills was chilly but bright

A 49-MILE JAUNT. Alex Butler and I drove down to Ellettsville, just south and east of Bloomington, for the Saturday leg of Central Indiana Bicycle Association's (CIBA) 41st Annual Hilly Hundred. The morning started c-c-cold but made it to chilly by midday. It never made it to warm, but the sun was bright in the afternoon, which made for a great ride. I don't remember the hills being so steep and long. Their names are still fresh in my mind and aching legs: Heartbreak Hill. The Three Sisters. Water Tower Hill. Those are Saturday's features. Sunday features Mount Tabor. Good luck, all. As usual, about 5,000 cyclists of all ages, sizes, styles, and states gathered for the Hilly. It's one of the fun cycling events in Central Indiana each year.
