Gardendale’s North Jefferson Century has made some changes after tremendous growth in their inaugural year in the Series. Hamburger Heaven will still be providing a fantastic lunch, but you’ll enjoy spacious, air-conditioned facilities before and after your ride at the Gardendale First Baptist Church. Perks include plentiful parking, use of men’s and women’s locker rooms with showers, and cool conditions for your post-ride lunch. The Gardendale Women’s Center has stepped up to coordinate and guarantee well-stocked rest stops and friendly volunteers…and more aid stations too!

NORTH JEFFERSON CENTURY – AUGUST 27,2016
Another fantastic event went into the books with our North Jefferson Century! From the Friday evening pre-registration at the Hoover Academy Sports + Outdoors to ride day registration, the process couldn’t have gone more smoothly. Organizers Clark Raymond, Russell & Tracy Fulmer, and Allen Folse as well as support teams at rest stops and on the road were super supportive. Bike Link’s Cameron rescued a bunch of cyclists both at headquarters and on the roadside. The North Jefferson’s Women Center and Wilson Family Dentistry hosted rest stops with the ride supporting CDKL5 Research.
Quite a change from last year’s cold and rainy NJC with less than 60 participants, the date change and becoming part of the ABCS helped to increase their numbers to nearly 240 riders with 141 completing the century route!
Sizzling temps set in quickly, but you’d never know it by the looks of our first finisher, Travis Sherman who graciously awarded little Carly Chandler his Centurion medal. Finish time for Travis was an amazing 4:52!
As we see so often, Terri Sullivan was our first female finisher, also looking fresh at her finish!
We were very fortunate to have not only Rose Gacula on the course snapping your photos but also Tracey White at headquarters grabbing your finishers’ photos.
