Spring Krusher

Spring Krusher

May 05 2018
Elkmont, Alabama, USA

Come join us for this tour of Limestone County and the surrounding areas, with some of the best cycling in the Southeast! Pick from 3 different distances: 31, ~64 and ~100 miles. Each course will be challenging but manageable! Low traffic! It’s an exceptionally beautiful course that will challenge you early in the season.

The ride benefits the counseling program of the Family Services Center, Inc. . The counseling program’s goal is to offer affordable, professional mental health services for those least able to pay. We’ll be bringing back our STRAVA competition. We’ll identify 3 STRAVA segments prior to ride start, with awards offered to an overall male and female rider. To make it more fun for everyone, one segment will offer an award to the fastest, one “middle man/woman” which will be the rider that has the middle time on a segment and one “Lantern Rouge” which will be the rider that brings up the rear, a coveted position in the Tour De France!

The "Krusher" is #4 in the Alabama Backroads Century Series
