ELLETTSVILLE, Ind. (AP) - Organizers are expecting at least 3,000 bicyclists will take part in the 50th annual Hilly Hundred ride this weekend in southern Indiana.

The bike tour follows mostly rural roads through the hills around the Bloomington area on Saturday and Sunday, with the rides of about 50 miles beginning and ending at Edgewood High School in Ellettsville.

Hilly Hundred marketing director Brad Bolling tells The (Bloomington) Herald-Times that some riders are expected to return after years away in order to mark the 50th anniversary. He says one highlight will be the ride’s return to Morgan-Monroe State Forest after road construction prevented its use the past few years.

Rest stops with live music will be stationed along the routes both days, with vendors and camping at the start/finish area.
