XENIA, Ohio (WDTN) - A few extra bicyclists will be out on the roads in Greene County through Sunday.
They are taking part in the tenth annual Greene Trails Cycling Classic.
The rides showcase the county's 62 miles of paved trails.
Thursday's ride was 34 miles from the Greene County Fairgrounds recreation center in Xenia to Dayton. Riders took part in a scavenger hunt along the way.
The biggest challenge was drinking enough water to beat the heat.
"I carry two bottles with me, but they've got enough stops so you are able to refill every 10 miles, so that's good," said Diane Jericho, cyclist.
"We've had everything. We've had where you had to wear sweaters at night to in the heat. This is pretty typical for Ohio in mid-July," said Gretchen Rieves, Greene County Parks and Trails.
No heat-related injuries were reported Thursday, but medical officials are on standby at the fairgrounds if they are needed.
Anyone can join the event for a day or more ride. Visit the Miami Valley Trails website for more information.
