Hell Week, with adventures in Texas (the original), Florida and New Mexico this year, offers between 600 and 860 miles of riding in 8 days (and maybe more if you're really adventurous).
Our slogan is "Eight Days A Week," because at Hell Week, eight days make one week (OK, so we're in our own time zone, but who's counting?) This format fits nicely into professional calendars because you can slip away from work for a week without having to dip too far into your vacation time.
Texas Hell Week is the original, and is now looking at its 25th anniversary in 2015 (March 14-21). Located in Fredericksburg TX, hundreds of riders have been coming to this German hamlet for some of the best rural riding this side of Eden. This year we are proud to partner once again with I Can Shine, a non-profit that provides learning and recreational opportunities for individuals with disabilities. Their premier events focus on putting kids on bikes...something each of us can relate to, and embrace. We are donating $10 from each Texas Hell Week entry this year to I Can Shine. Type of Event: Base Camp. Difficulty Rating: 3.0

Gator Country Hell Week has run for seventeen years as a fully-supported tour of central and south Florida. Dates are always 28 December - 04 January. We launched a new route a couple of years ago, and are pleased to offer it again for 2014-2015. Start/Finish is in Clermont FL, about 20 miles west of Orlando. At a time when nearly everyone else is bemoaning the cold and snow, GCHW provides a chance to break away and experience what the weather should be like in winter. Type of Event: Fully-Supported Tour. Difficulty Rating: 2.0
New! Zia Hell Week is in its first year in 2015, with a fully-supported tour of New Mexico starting and finish in Albuquerque. The toue runs 23 - 30 May, with daily mileages of 80-100 miles. The first leg of the tour utilizes long stretches of old Route 66 as it goes through Grants and Gallup, and then returns via a different route much of the way to Albuquerque. The route then turns north to Santa Fe and Taos, where we will spend one daydoing the legendary Enchanted Circle Tour route through Red River. Every mile of the tour is above 5000 feet in elevation, ensuring the heat of summer will be beneath us. Difficulty Rating: 3.0
