About the Hot Hundred

Hot Hundred, Tuscaloosa’s first century bicycle ride first took place in 2003. It intentionally started out as a club for local riders to enjoy, but eventually turned into a prime event!

Join local bikers in the 15th annual event this year on July 29th starting at 7 AM!

Rides will begin at the UA Rec Center with various routes, depending on which race you register for. There will be a variety of ride distance options: 29, 36, 52, 71, and 103 miles. Online registration is currently available until July 27th for a fee of $65. It’s recommended to sign-up early, because onsite registration (July 28-29) has a fee of $80.

Why Ride?

Local bikers work together in efforts to support those apart of Tuscaloosa Mental Health Alliance. Mental illness is something that affects the community as well as many of our loved ones, so Hot Hundred is spreading the awareness through this event! Proceeds will benefit the organization in their needs of access to care, intervention, education, stigma, etc. Click here to read more about the organization.
