On behalf of the Rotary Club of Madison County and the Hot Doggett Organizing Committee, I want to say thank you for your role in helping make the 12th annual Hot Doggett 100 a success. Your volunteer efforts helped us to raise roughly $17,000 (net) to be used throughout the coming year for numerous youth-related programs in our community. One of the comments we get from many riders each year is that they think we have the best volunteers and that they really appreciate all of the support our ride offers.
In spite of some heavy storms in the days leading up to the event, the event ended up having one of the best weather days ever. Cyclists came from 17 different states - some as far away as Texas and Oregon. Roughly 55% came from the greater Asheville area (within 100 miles). Our average age continues to be in the upper 40s and the ratio of women to men inched up one percent to 21%. It is also important to note that for our event to be successful, we rely on over 100 volunteers.
We are happy to announce that the 2018 Hot Doggett 100 will take place on July 14th.
Jim Utterback, Volunteer Coordinator
Thanks for making a difference! We hope that you will consider volunteering again in 2018.
The Hot Doggett 100 Bike Ride is our club's largest fundraiser and the catalyst for the programs and opportunities that our club can offer the community. The Ride consists of three courses ranging from 37.5 mile ride with 3,859 ft in total ascent to the signature 100.1 mile challenge that gains over 10,000 ft in elevation over the length of the course. The 13th annual Hot Doggett bike rides will be on July 14, 2018. Mark your Calendars. All of the rides are well supported by members of the club as well as a significant participation by the community volunteers.
