Johnny Ray Century

May 6th 20237 a.m. - 4 p.m.

The Opelika Bicycle Advisory Committee's Johnny Ray Century Ride for Parkinson's Disease is presented by the East Alabama Cycling Club and benefits the Davis Phinney Foundation.

The Johnny Ray Century returns as a member of the Alabama Backroads Century series for 2019. The Johnny Ray Century began amid a push for a rail-to-trail between Opelika and Roanoke, a rail line heavily used by the train engineer Johnny Ray.

JRC riders will tour the true backroads of rural Lee, Chambers, and Randolph Counties of East Alabama. Adventurous gravel cyclists will be treated to some beautiful world-class gravel Chambers County dirt roads. Otherwise, road surfaces vary from asphalt to chip seal.

20 miles - Cussseta Commuter

34 miles - Twin Silos Shuffle

60 miles - Lafayette Short Line

104 miles - Johnny Ray Century

66 miles - Dirty 66 (gravel)

Expect catered continental breakfast and Mama Mocha's locally roasted coffee. Starting around 11-12, lunch will be catered by our friends at Red Clay Brewing Company accompanied by your choice of Opelika's finest frosty beverages. Lunch will be available to all riders whether you ride short or long.  All costs included in your registration!
