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.
