 Details The 12th annual Hot Hundred is the 5th event in the Alabama Backroads Century Series...www.alabama-backroads-cycling.com
The Hot Hundred, also known as the Hottest Ride in the South invites cyclists of all abilities…from the newbie doing a first large group ride to the elite peloton. The University of Alabama welcomes you to enjoy the pedal past historic Denny Chimes and shout out a “Roll Tide!” as you cruise past famous Bryant-Denny Stadium. The first few miles are at a controlled pace with an exciting escort by the Tuscaloosa Police Department motorcycle team. From there you have your choice of five distances: 29, 36, 52, 71, and 103 miles, supported by 6 roving SAG drivers and mechanic and 6 Rest Stops. Prepare to be pampered by DCH Sports Trainers and our awesome volunteers who will be keeping a close eye on you for overheating and have some great treats (snow cones?) to keep you going! After your ride, replenish with ice cold drinks and lunch, followed by a refreshing swim in the beautiful Rec Center pool.
With over 600 participants in 2013, the Hot Hundred is the sole fundraiser for the Tuscaloosa Mental Health Alliance and also supports the advocacy efforts of the Druid City Bicycle Club.

Join us Friday night at VeloCity Pro Cycle to claim your goody bag, have some dinner and meet your fellow cyclists!
