We greatly appreciate your time in taking this follow-up survey if you participated in our Tour Autauga.


TOUR AUTAUGA RIDE REPORT

The 2nd event in the 2017 Series was invited in 2015 and since has grown from 40 participants to 298 this past Saturday.  The ride was originally at Spinners Park but quickly grew to the point that added space was crucial and they moved to the First Baptist Church in Prattville. By day’s end we had signed in 150 Centurions.

Both Pre-Registration at Academy Sports and Day Of Registration went smoothly. Prattville Police were on hand to provide safe exit from the Church parking lot.  Boxes full of goodies, Buffalo Rock barrel coolers with Gatorade and Aquafina water were picked up by volunteers and transported to rest stop locations in Autauga County. Montgomery Multisport mechanic Andy was on hand all day and represented our TREK sponsor by providing repairs and even SAG support…he’s the lucky guy in this photo with Tour Autauga and Series organizers:

Congratulations to Ride Directors Sharon Davis, Bill Duke, and Allyson Barganier as well as the many volunteers who helped put on this record-breaking ride!

First century riders in were Ron Zannini, John Passwater, Tony Robbins, Augie Somers, and Roger Larsen.

Rider of the Week: David Wanhatalo who dropped from the lead group to help our first female rider with a flat tire. Congrats to David and to Terrie Sullivan!

Even though this couple doesn’t take on our century routes, we’re always happy to see their smiling faces after they pedal the metric.

Absolutely wonderful ride. The century is routed on the backroads of rural Autauga County, Alabama. It was well planned, well supported,  and well sagged. First 60% to 70% of the route is a rolling uphill climb gradually moving upward and when you reach the plateau at the end of the uphill trend, you have this view of a wide open sky capturing a wonderful view of the country side of Autauga County. And on the decent you catch this “magic carpet” ride “most” of the way down to the finish. Truly a memorable experience for any Centurion.
