8 - 15 March 2014
Texas Hell Week is as common to Spring as are daffodils and wildflowers. Nicknamed "The Rides of March," HWTX features 8 days of incredible riding and stunning scenery in Texas Hill Country. For 2014 we're returning some old favorites and adding many new variations. You can register online, by phone, or by mail. Entry fees and online registration are available now. Early registrants can get on board for as low as $89 with our a la carte registration program.
Returning at Texas Hell Week in 2014 are our brevets, including a 200K on Monday, a 200K and 300K on Wednesday, and 200K/300K on Friday. Please visit the HW Brevets and HW Brevet Routes pages for more information.
Texas Hell Week routinely brings in hundreds of cyclists from all over the US, Canada and beyond. We haven't done very much to market Texas Hell Week. It grows because of our riders who go home and tell their friends...and then return to Texas the next year with them.
You don't need a marketing degree to know that word-of-mouth is the most powerful form of communications. We are grateful to everyone who has played a role in helping this event grow beyond our wildest dreams!
< The philosophy of Hell Week is that riding is the first and foremost activity, regardless of one's speed or endurance on the bike. Thus, it is no surprise that Hell Week attracts riders of all skill levels, all with the same basic goal: to have fun. It makes little difference if you've ridden 3000 miles by March, or are just dusting off the bike for the first time.
The camaraderie you will find at Hell Week is the thing that will linger the longest in your memories of the event. Don't be surprised if you find yourself keeping touch with other Hell Weekers throughout the year.
Routes are challenging, but not overly difficult. On average, our century routes have between 4000 and 5000 feet of vertical climbing on each route. Texas Hill Country features countless short, steep hills that when taken cumulatively can be just as demanding as riding in the mountains.
