The Crimson Tide 29 – follow white road markings out & back
Starting at the UA Rec Center, enjoy the roll through Crimson Tide Country, passing Denny Chimes and Bryant Denny Stadium. The first mile+ is considered a Neutral Start and cyclists must remain behind the pace car until reaching Capitol Park…this is where the century ride begins. 29-milers, you have a nice, flat out & back with the Black Warrior Rest Stop at the halfway point!
Up Dry Creek Without a Paddle 36 – follow white road markings to 1st Rest Stop – then blue road markings – all distances follow white markings from last Rest Stop back to Headquarters.
Get ready! This is your first climb and it’s a long one! Just past our first Rest Stop, you’ll hang a right onto Hwy. 11…then, a ways up the road, you’ll take another right onto Dry Creek. It’s a long climb so use your gears or get off and hike it some. But it’s all downhill from there…yeah, sure. You’ve heard that one before, haven’t you!
The Frog Ridge Croaker 52 – follow white road markings to 1st Rest Stop – then orange road markings- all distances follow white markings from last Rest Stopback to Headquarters.
Here ya go with a few more climbs, but beautiful countryside! The best part about the Croaker is our Romulus Volunteer Fire Station Rest Stop. These folks love the Hot Hundred and will go out of their way to provide what you need. VeloCity Pro Cycle will have a mechanic stationed here if you need assistance…from there, he will work his way up the road to keep an eye out for you.
Crazy Like a Foxfire 71 – follow white road markings to 1st Rest Stop – then green road markings- all distances follow white markings from last Rest Stopback to Headquarters.
Enjoy more beautiful, quiet roads…but, beware…you are entering Greene County, notorious for some rough roads. The upside? Pampering at our Bethel Rest Stop! A team of DCH Sports Trainers awaits you there with a misting station and cold, wet towels to cool you down. Trainers are also stationed at our other Rest Stops to help you with any over-heating issues.
The Hellishly HOT HUNDRED +3 – follow white road markings to 1st Rest Stop – then red road markings- all distances follow white markings from last Rest Stopback to Headquarters.
Yep! If the 103 miles is your goal, chances are good it’s gonna be hellishly hot! You’ve gotta be tough to accomplish this one! Remember, you need to reach mile 31 by 9:30 or may be asked to opt for the 71-mile route. Our volunteers at White Oak Church and Johnson Hill UMC will be waiting with cold drinks, ice, fruit, and everything you need to boost your energy and push through. And, yes, next is the famous Bethel Church Rest Stop!
