Your ride will begin with a cruise through the beautiful University of Alabama campus past such landmarks as the Denny Chimes Bell Tower and the Bryant-Denny Stadium.

Denny Chimes, an enduring symbol of Alabama’s first university, was erected in 1929 to honor President George H Denny, under whose leadership The University of Alabama gained national prominence.  Around the base of the tower is the Alabama football captain’s walk of fame, which bears hand and foot impressions of each captain from Crimson Tide teams dating back to the 1940′s.  Bryant Denny Stadium is the on-campus home of the Alabama Crimson Tide football team, winners of 16 national championships.  The stadium has a seating capacity of 101,000.

Campus police will escort you through campus and hand off to the Tuscaloosa Police for escort down University Blvd., past Capitol Park, and out to Sanders Ferry Rd.  These first dozen miles offer a flat warm-up for a century ride or a scenic out-and-back of 25 miles, followed by lunch and an afternoon at the Rec Center pool.

Longer-distance cyclists will travel through the rolling hills of rural West Central Alabama, enjoying the remote and lightly traveled back-roads of Greene County.  Ride through small communities with quaint names like Romulus, Jena, Mantua, Lewiston, Snoddy, and Ralph.

Riding distance options include 29,36,52,71, and 103 miles back to campus, but no matter what distance you’ve chosen, the course will bring you down Jack Warner Parkway with beautiful views of Tuscaloosa’s Riverwalk Park and the Black Warrior River.

The Hot Hundred has become known for its superior on-road support.  Century riders can look forward to 6 well-stocked Rest Stops as well as easy-to-spot SAG drivers along the route.  At ride end, you will enjoy pampering by ride support staff along with cold drinks and lunch….and a dip in that beautiful pool!

In its 14th year, the Hot Hundred again proudly benefits the Tuscaloosa Community Mental Health Alliance and the advocacy efforts of the Druid City Bicycle Club.
