All participating events will be presenting CENTURION medals as you complete each 100-mile ride as well as THE PATCH when you complete your first four.

We’ll be looking forward to seeing many of you showing off your medals, patches, and jerseys as Ted Goode did at the end of his 2015 season:


We’re very happy to have BUFFALO ROCK/PEPSI back as our PRESENTING SPONSOR, providing soft drinks, bottled water, banners, and Gatorade for each event and those big 10-gallon barrel coolers too!

Our 2015 CHAMPIONS will be recognized at our CHAMPIONS’ BANQUET & AWARDS CEREMONY on January 16th and will receive their 2015 CHAMPION jerseys provided by PRIMAL WEAR’S sponsorship.  They’ll be the first to see our awesome 2016 design!

We welcome ACADEMY SPORTS, offering several of our events a super Pre-Registration venue with plentiful parking and opportunity for you to pick up those last-minute supplies.  Pre-registering at Academy also makes you eligible for gift cards for a last-minute shopping spree…watch for news on which events will offer this opportunity!

BLUE CROSS BLUE SHIELD OF ALABAMA, sends best wishes for safe rides in support of health and wellness.  Please visit our SPONSOR page for more information from BCBS and our other supporting sponsors.

Bet you’re all wondering if our Fabulous 14 finished up with all 13 centuries DONE.  Well, YES THEY DID!    (Click on any photo for a larger view)

Special recognition goes out to RICK SWAGLER, TED GOODE, TONY ROBBINS, AND VIC CAMP who not only did all of our century rides this year but did the same last year when we offered 10 centuries to ride!  What an accomplishment!

With 1200 ABCS miles logged in for the year were two determined women and one man!

These 9 men and one tough lady pedaled 11 of our Series centuries!

And these are our remaining 9 cyclists who will be awarded this year’s Series CHAMPION jerseys!


Congratulations also to Edwin Martin, Kathy Welch, Paul Laborde, Glenn Baird & Ray Harrison with 9 centuries accomplished!


And to these cyclists we send a salute for 8 centuries DONE in the 2015 Series!

12 men completed 7 of our century options!


With 600 Series miles DONE are these 10 men and one woman!

This entire list of 29 bicyclists not only earned their patch, but pedaled a 5th century during the 2015 season!
