Come Ride With Us!!

NEABA proudly presents Cheaha Challenge Gran Fondo & ULTRA Ride and the Coldwater Mountain Fat Tire Festival.  In addition NEABA supports local events such as the Sunny King Criteriem, McClellan Road Race, The Noble Street Festival, and the Stinger Metric Century.  Click on the image to jump to the event's website.

The 2018 Cheaha Challenge Gran Fondo Century & ULTRA ride upholds the tradition of excellence established 26 years ago. The 1992 ride organizers' vision, to create a challenging route over the highest point in Alabama - Mount Cheaha - and then back again, continues to fulfill the event's tagline promise to be "the toughest ride in the South."

The rides start and finish on the sweeping campus of Jacksonville State University in Jacksonville, Alabama, where both the University and City have proven to be gracious hosts for the events.  The 2018 Cheaha Challenge will be the ONLY USA Qualifier for the 2018 UCI Gran Fondo World Championships!

Instead of a 3 day festival this year, NEABA will be hosting a “Party on the Patio” on Saturday, October 20th starting at 10:00 AM and going to 10:00 PM at the Coldwater Mountain Upper Trailhead.  We will be providing hamburgers and hotdogs, and, of course, beer to all who want to come and join us for a fun day on the mountain.  Local riders will be leading group rides, we will have a bonfire once the sun goes down, and rumor has it the Beerbulance will be making an appearance.  Be looking for a Facebook event notification coming soon!

 

We have already started the process of securing the date and venue for next year’s Coldwater Mountain FatTireFest, and dates will be announced shortly.

The Alabama Cycling Classic is a weekend event that combines the well-established Sunny King Criterium with the McClellan Road Race for two full days of road racing, kicking off the Professional Road Tour.  The City of Anniston proudly hosts this event and this past year has marked the 14th year the city has hosted the event.  The Alabama Cycling Classic is held in conjunction with the Noble Street Festival.
