Highway 2 Hale is hosted by the American Advertising Federation of Tuscaloosa (AAFT) and is one of the new rides of the 2018 Alabama Backroads Century Series, directed by 3-time CHAMPION Fred Twilley and supported by active Series cyclists and CHAMPIONS of the Tuscaloosa Cycle Club.
Located in the west-central part of the state in Alabama’s Black Belt, the area that now constitutes Hale County was home to three Alabama governors: Israel Pickens, John Gayle, and Thomas Seay. Hale County’s Moundville Archaeological Park includes a number of Mississippian-era mounds built by Native Americans more than 1,000 years ago. The town of Greensboro claims the title of Alabama’s “Catfish Capital” and was the birthplace of the Hale County Civic Improvement League, one of the nation’s first civil-rights associations.
