Old Howard 100 Bike Ride
April 18, 2015
The Old Howard 100 is a ride through three counties in Alabama’s historic Black Belt sponsored by Samford University’s Howard College of Arts and Sciences. The event benefits Sowing Seeds of Hope, a partnership between Perry County and Cooperative Baptist Fellowship that seeks to enhance the quality of work and life in Perry County through improved educational opportunities, health care, tourism, transportation and economic development.
Starting with the 2013 ride, the Old Howard 100 became part of the Alabama Backroads Cycling Century Series. The new series of 13 rides seeks to promote the growth and development of long-distance cycling in the state of Alabama, encourage participation in established Alabama century (100-mile) rides, recognize and reward individuals for their accomplishments, and benefit the charities and advocacy efforts supported by each of the events.
