The Hot Hundred is gearing up for your arrival in just a couple of weeks!  We are the 5th event in the Alabama Backroads Century Series and looking forward to awarding as many as 29 patches in recognition of 4 of the 10 centuries DONE!  Routes of 29,36,52,71 & 103 miles are supported with 6 Rest Stations, 7 well-marked SAG vehicles, and area law enforcement agencies.  Shout out a Roll Tide! as you pedal past Bryant Denny Stadium and famous Denny Chimes in the company of soldiers from Forts Benning and Gordon!  The first few miles from the UA Rec Center to Capitol Park are known as a NEUTRAL START, cruising behind the lead car at ~15 mph.  In addition to TPD escort, these miles will be supported by the Dirty South Cruisers, a well-known motorcycle club staging at each main intersection.  We welcome cyclists of all ages and skill-levels to join us for the 12th Annual Hot Hundred!

*Centurions, make sure to check in at our Johnson Hill Rest Stop.  Stop in for a break or just a quick shout out of your bib number.
