More To Do: Hot Doggett 100 Bike Race: July 12

Mark your calendars for this Saturday, July, 12th. It's a great opportunity for some fun in the sun, without needing to do a lot of driving.

The 3rd Annual Hot Doggett 100 Bike Race kicks off on that day. Named after Doggett Mountain, the event has three different race courses. Bikers will make their way through:
...some of the most scenic and lightly traveled roads anywhere in western North Carolina.
And all of it is based right here in our county, using Mars Hill College as the operations center. Racers apparently love this event, not only for its 9,600 feet of ascension, but also for its locker rooms with showers. Ahh, the lap of luxury.

Driving directions for those inclined can be found here. The events start early, proceeds are used to fund scholarships for local students, and Rotary service projects. More than 300 competitors are expected.
