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!

Bikes, Beer, Burgers, Brats, and Bands!!   What more needs to be said for a whirlwind of fun at the Coldwater Mountain Fat Tire Festival?   The Festival is held annually in Anniston, AL on the second full weekend of October.  The fest kicks off on a Friday afternoon and doesn’t wind down until Sunday evening. In between, participants will enjoy a vast variety of outdoor activities, including a nighttime trail ride, a cycling movie under the stars at the trailhead, open rides on all the trails, groups rides geared for all levels, demo bikes – for trail and road, cycling-related games, a just-for-fun duathlon, a poker ride, and loads of local food, beer and music.

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.
