After Saturday’s Hotter’N Hell Hundred, there have been a significant amount of complaints about trash left along the route on social media.
Several pictures showed dozens of water bottles and Red Bull cans along Texoma roads.
Hotter’N Hell officials said a few groups of unsanctioned, but well intentioned, people were handing out water bottles.
And a Red Bull truck was also seen along the route, which was not officially approved through the organization.
“I’m surprised at the cyclists that forgot they had three pockets on the back of their jersey to put their bottle in,” Sandy Fleming, a Hotter’N Hell official, said. “I’m really…. I’m disappointed. And the very few cyclists that did that.”
Hotter’N Hell officials said not only does the trash create a riding hazard, but it also adds to the littering problem.
The organization said they will be driving around the route to day to pick up trash and they thank those who helped in the clean up.
