Now that the Johnny Ray is in the books I thought I’d share some numbers with everyone. We had 227 riders participate this year. Oddly, almost 20 riders did 20 miles, 35 riders did 34 miles, 63 riders did 63 miles and 107 did 105 miles. I re-counted that like 50 times it seemed so odd.
Of those 227 riders most were from Alabama and Georgia, but also from Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Ohio, Texas & Virginia.
Last but certainly not least, we were all riding to support the Davis Phinney Foundation and their work to help people live well with Parkinson’s Disease. Through fundraising, personal donations and your event registration East Alabama Cycling Club will be proudly donating $5286 dollars to the Davis Phinney Foundation.
In case you missed it the giant billboards around town will remind you. The Johnny Ray Century is happening this Saturday. There's still time to be apart of the event, the Alabama Backroads Series, contribute to the Davis Phinney Foundation and support the foundation's wonderful work for those with Parkinson's.
If it's the Sept Meeting,
It's All About the Johnny Ray!
12 Sept 7 pm Church of the Highlands
We're got lots new in store.
Be the first to hear about our prestigious Master of Ceremonies, our fundraising efforts, a possible new meal, Scott's awesome new tee-shirt design, and the future of the event.
Volunteers will be able to sign waivers, stipulate tee-shirt sizes, and get specifics on ride-day assignments.
There's still time to sign up - for an hour or two - or more.
We need you!
Hear about ABCS centuries and the exploits of the Alabama Randonneurs.
As always, coffee and snacks available.
