Series Jersey 2014 2014-06-30 at 6.31.24 PM


Birmingham Bike Club2013-01-26 at 10.42.25 AM

The September 6th Birmingham Bicycle Club’s 41st Annual Century was another huge Series success with their number of century riders up to 134 from 89!  Total registration took a leap from 158 last year to 218 this time!

A few stats after our first 7 events:

  • 9 cyclists have completed all 7 centuries so far!
  • 12 have pedaled 6 out of those 7!
  • 16 have accomplished 5 of them!
  • 31 have ridden 4 centuries out of 7!
  • 52 succeeded in finishing 3  100-milers!
  • 91 have completed 2 of our century options!


Beginning with our 7 out of 10 Centuries DONE (sorry we missed a photo of Rick Swagler so stealing one from Hot Hundred!) Congratulations to these 9 Alabamians who are obviously reaching for the goal of completing all 10 centuries!
