Yet again we can report a tremendous increase in numbers for our Tannehill Ironworks Century!  Total registration almost doubled with 189 signed up.  Of these, 98 received Centurion status!  What an awesome number!!!

From Ride Director, Doug Daughhetee:                                                                                            The mid-day heat took its toll on folks, leading some to linger long on the porch at Eclipse (we call it “homesteading”) before starting their journey back to Tannehill.  Relief from the heat arrived in the afternoon in the form of cloud cover and occasional rain showers-some of ‘em briefly heavy, but a turn in the weather welcomed by the riders.  A few riders caught sag rides back to the park, but without those showers it is likely more would have had to get sagged in.  As it turned out, though, the riders going the full distance late in the day seemed relatively cool, calm and collected as they arrived back at Tannehill.


 

Beginning with our 6 out of 10 Centuries DONE (sorry we’re missing fresh photos of Alex & Calvin!), congratulations to 9 Alabamians for this awesome achievement!!!
