Alabama Backroads Century - Update

The Alabama Backroads Century Series ( just keeps rolling along - last week's Hot Hundred in Tuscaloosa had a record turnout of 664 riders!

Up next in the ABC series is BUMP's Ironworks Century on August 9, a week from this Saturday at Tannehill Ironworks Historical State Park.

The Ironworks Century is a much smaller event than the HH, appealing to, shall we say, a more refined taste - especially (for the first 15 miles, anyway) to connoisseurs of climbing! Then it calms down a lot.

Online registration for $35 closes Wednesday, August 6, while onsite registration on the big day is just $40.

Distance options are 44, 66, 78 & 100 miles; detailed route info, map, etc. is online at<<>>, or click on the Ironworks logo at<<>>.

This year marks the 5th anniversary of BUMP's premier road event, and the first 100 century finishers will get a handsome ABCS Centurion medal (later finishers will have to await a re-order), courtesy of the good folks at Bike Link.

Come join us for some hot fun in the summertime!
