The Century Ride

 

Habitat for Humanity Gears Up to Host another “Century Ride”

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 year.

 

Flyers coming out soon.

When: Saturday, October, 2nd, 2010 Registration at 7:00am - Ride begins promptly at 8:00am

Where: Almond Municipal Building at 1 Marvin Lane

Cost: Cost will be $20.

The ride will start from the Almond Fire Hall located on Marvin Lane just off of Main Street (State Route 21) in Almond. Most of the course is lightly traveled secondary roads. It is all paved. It runs through Scio, Friendship and Cuba to Olean and back.

 

The course will be marked at various locations for 25 mile, 50 mile and 100K (62 mile) rides for those who don’t want to pedal the full 100 miles.

 

Food & drinks are available every 10 to 15 miles along the way from convenience stores and grocery stores.
