It Happened in 2018...



It's all happening March 9...

Join us for what will be one of the best Century Rides in the southeast this spring! This fully supported Century will start and finish at Ride On Bikes in Uptown Columbus and will feature some of the best roads and sights that Fort Benning has to offer. There will be five rest stops with food, water, and hydration mix as well as mechanical support vehicles driving the course. 

The ride will feature 40, 65, and 100 mile options with plenty of elevation change for the bold riders who take on the century route featuring the climb to Watchtower! Entry fee is $30 and includes a t-shirt to commemorate the event. 

We will have a KOM Challenge as well as a Poker Run Challenge- stop at each rest stop to finish the century with a full hand and the best hand wins a $1000 gift card to Ride On Bikes!! The ride will finish just in time to kick off our annual Time Change Party with plenty of food and drinks! What are you waiting for?! Register through the link today!
