Started in 2002, on what was a spur of the moment idea, the TriStates 100 has become a first class event and fund raiser for the Children’s Hospital of Alabama. In 2014, we donated more than $30,000 to the Pediatric Cancer unit (Dawn Pitchford Account) of the Children’s Hospital.The TriStates 100 is the only ride in the area that expands three states (Alabama, Florida, and Georgia) in one exciting ride. The course is challenging without being difficult. The TriStates Century route is 102 miles and encompasses all three states. Our 69 mile course takes you through a tour of eastern Houston county. The newest route is 41 miles long and is a hybrid of the short route and the metric. The 30 mile course is a shorter tour through Houston county.

All proceeds go to the Dawn Pitchford Fund, which helps with the non-medical needs of the children with cancer. Dawn Pitchford was an amazing girl diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia when she was 14. She noticed the other patients without simple comforts like stuffed animals, balloons, flowers, normal pajamas, bedroom shoes, and headwraps. Dawn spent the money that people sent her to help other people. Even after she’s gone, her selflessness continues and the Tri-States 100 is thrilled to help such a great cause.

With your help we can continue to build the success of this ride. Please share your memories of this event with other riders, and let them know where to find us on the web.

    Great Ride, a very challenging Century Ride. SAG support was great, well stocked Rest Stops with friendly enthusiastic people. This was my first but definitely not my last. I look forward to doing this again next Year, hopefully I can bring some friends along as well. The Charity that you have aligned with is well worth the price of the entry fee alone. Kudos to all involved, a Good Job all around! .

    I may bring extra donations the 5th who do I give this to?

    I want to thank all the volunteers for being givers.

    On the 100-mile route I felt bad for the 1st rest stop crew who set up at the wrong spot (a location on last year’s route I was told). I knew they must have felt horrible about it, and as I peddled along I wanted to say “It’s okay, you were with the riders in spirit and we were all thinking about you.” One of the SAG wagon drivers set up an impromptu water station to make sure everyone was hydrated and otherwise safe. He was standing on the back of his truck dripping sweat but busily pouring water into bottles of huddled up eager riders. It reminded me of a mother bird feeding a gang of hungry babies, all ganged up with their beaks open waiting to be filled. He was selfless!

    What can I say about the staff at the start/finish? Everyone was so pleasant and cheerful. The food? It was prepared as a labor of love, and it tasted and filled accordingly. The food was great! It was also very much appreciated that we had the wonderful facilities to use at Bethel Baptist church. Oh, and not to forget the gal at the last stop who insisted on giving everyone high fives. What a ball of energy she is, and the rest of that crew too!

    Thanks so much everyone. For so many reasons your work was a labor of love, something we can never share or have to much of. All of your are fantastic!
