Coming Again in 2017

Saturday October 21st, 2017

Are you ready for 100 miles of smooth, flowing, red, dirt roads? Waverly, Alabama is home to some of the most highly concentrated dirt roads in Alabama. Starting at the folksy Standard Deluxe music venue, we will be cruising a 100 and 60 mile loop during a self-supported dirt road race. Whether you are just looking to finish this adventure or crush the competition, come on out and join us.

For 2017 We are going BIG! Look for more info in the coming months.

THE SELF SUPPORTED ETHIC

This Dirt Road Century will inspire the Self Supported Ethic, in which it was originally developed and ridden. Riding bicycles self supported is:

Simple

Hardcore

Confidence Inspiring

Preparation for Other Hardcore Races

That being said, we will offer limited aid stations along the route (1 for the 60 and 2 for the 100). Those stations will include food and water, however if riding self supported is your style, then we very much encourage you. Please bring a GPS with the route already uploaded.
