The Johnny Ray Century is sponsored by the Opelika Bicycle Advisory Committee and is an initiative of the East Alabama Cycling Club-the founders of the ride. Once again, the ride will work with the Davis Phinney Foundation, to support their mission with Parkinson’s. "A Fall Classic...the 15th annual fully supported charity bike ride benefitting the Davis Phinney Foundation for Parkinson's. Explore the quiet (but sometimes rough) backroads of the lovely East Alabama countryside on your choice of a 20, 34, 63, or 105 mile route-following the now abandoned 19th century Central of Georgia railroad spur. The 105 mile Century option takes riders into downtown Roanoke where Johnny Ray himself, its famed conductor, is believed buried." - via the Facebook event
