The Hotter N Hell 100K event kicked off on Saturday, August 29, 2009. As a volunteer for Station #2, I had a chance to see what this major Texas event is all about! Every year, people from throughout the world participate in the 100k bike-athon and volunteers come out to support them.
The theme for Station #2 rest stop was a Luau. The competitive bikers passed the station quite early in the morning, competiting in the 100k. However, like an incredible rush, all the other bikers began to show up at our station for fresh fruit, drinks, and photo-taking with several men and women dressed in hula skirts and coconut bras.
I really enjoyed being a volunteer. It was wonderful to see how appreciative the bikers were for being able to have a rest stop where they could fill their water bottles up and get some food to eat. There was also a lot of team work among the volunteers. It was a lot of hard work, but definitely worth the effort!
