Originally inspired by the Paris-Roubaix Classic on the cobblestones, the Hell of the North Texas is pleased to now be considered a Paris, Texas tradition! 

Already an established Classic, the HOTNT enhances that pedigree with some of the most unique back country, gravel and dirt routes available anywhere. We will be linking primarily shaded and canopy roads to help as you challenge the summer sun. The route incorporates scenic portions of the North East Texas Trail and will also feature a finishers' lap which rivals the spectacle of the velodrome in Roubaix. Courses will be marked and GPS files and a phone app will be provided for backup navigation as well. Please note that these routes are NOT road bike appropriate. Gravel rigs, CX bikes or hardtail MTB's are the way to go.

This is a self supported event so riders are expected to make their own arrangements if they break down on course. There will not be SAG vehicles on the course. We will have aide stations on course and riders are never very far from civilization. All participants are expected to abide by the Texas Traffic Code and most only utilize bicycles without motorized assistance of any kind.

This is being held in conjunction with the Tour de Paris road rally the day before so please do make a weekend of it!
