Hilly Hundred Video

Categories: Outdoors, Family Fun

This year will mark the 43rd year for Bloomington's other bicycle tradition, the annual Hilly Hundred Bicycle Tour. The event is based out of Ellettsville, Indiana, just a few minutes to the west of downtown Bloomington, but leads the approximately 5,000 pariticpants on a beautiful scenic tour of south central Indiana's rolling hills. Traversing some of the most beautiful back roads in the Midwest, the Hilly Hundred offers bicyclists a chance to enjoy the beautiful fall weather, one another's company and a challenging ride.

This year's Hilly Hundred will be held October 8-10. If you're planning on participating, have a wonderful visit to the Bloomington area and enjoy the ride! If you're not planning to participate, why not? Here's some footage from a previous Hilly Hundred, just to get  you in the right mood:
