Humanity and The Century Ride
The Century Ride
Habitat for Humanity Gears Up to Host another “Century
Bicycle enthusiasts prepare! The 2010 Alfred Habitat
Century ride is coming in the fall. This 100 mile round
trip ride is run on lightly traveled, predominately flat
paved roads. All proceeds go to help a worthy cause:
Habitat for Humanity.
The Genesee Valley Chapter of Habitat for Humanity
and Alfred University Habitat for Humanity are
hosting the 10th annual Century Ride.
The first Alfred Century Ride was run in 1895 when a
group of bicycling enthusiasts decided to take the
relatively flat trip to Olean and back. About 40 riders
revived the event in 1995 on its 100th anniversary. This
year’s trip will be the fourteenth modern ride.
This may be the longest running century ride on a
century old course and is one of the longest running
century rides that have had recumbents entered each

through Scio, Friendship and Cuba to Olean and back.
The course will be marked at various locations for 25
