    Using the Red Diamond Campus as the Ride Headquarters for the Tour de Blue set the stage for a great century. The volunteer support group were friendly and helpful. The sag wagons patrolled the course on a regular basis to provide mechanical assistance to bikers and to offer bottles of water (which were much needed in the heat of the day). The course was routed over the rolling hills in and around Moody, Alabama, located North-East of Birmingham. The roads passed through patches of shaded areas which proved to be refreshing in the heat of the day. Some of the ridges offered astounding views of the valley. The elevation was well over 5000 feet and the grades of some of the hills ranged from 8% to 15% (according to Garman), which made the course challenging to an average biker. Overall this was a great, well-planned course. I recommend to centurions that it be included in centuries to ride in 2016.

  2. Thank you Jimmy for this great review of Tour de Blue! We sure appreciate your time in sharing your view on the rides you’ve done in the Series and hope to see you at many more.
