44 YEARS FOR THE BBC CENTURY!

 Join us in Ashville for one of the most beautiful centuries in the Southeast! All new routes for everyone from the challenging 100 mile Century to optional shorter flatter routes that let you just enjoy the scenery and company of fellow cyclists.

This year’s ride will again be the 10th event in the Series.  We look forward to begin recognizing our first CHAMPIONS of 2017!

BBC Century 2016 Ride Report & Photos

Why would we be surprised that in its 43rd year, the BBC Century was a HUGE success! From Packet Pick Up at Cahaba Brewery to day of registration at the Ashville High School, all went very smoothly. Ashville Police controlled traffic at the start and onto CR 26 and then trailed the group out of town! Ride Directors Gene Wallace and Wayne Spooner, put on an extremely well-run and organized ride along one of the prettiest routes in the Series. Kudos to Birmingham Bike Club members who supported our bicyclists at rest stops and on the road. A shout out goes to Mike Flowers with Cahaba Cycles who made some great saves for a good number of cyclists during the day.  Their mini rest stops went over very well as the temps again shot up into the mid-90’s.

As the 10th event in the Series, we were able to recognize 21 CHAMPIONS who’ve already pedaled all 10 of the centuries in the Series!  Will they be going for 13?  Congratulations to these 20 men and ONE WOMAN who will be awarded the limited edition CHAMPION jersey by Primal. We look forward to awarding many more at our next ride, the ALL YOU CAN EAT CENTURY in Huntsville next Saturday (Sept. 17th).

A big THANK YOU goes out to Marsha Burt who stayed cool and calm signing you in-145 BBC Centurions on Saturday! She doesn’t miss a thing!

And to our ABCS Photographer, Rose Gacula we can only say WOW!  Her on-road and finish photos just keep on getting better and better!  Enjoy!
