Descriptions and Information
In 2017, Spring City Cycling Club designed an entirely new course for the All-You-Can-Eat Century. The Century now starts in Huntsville, AL from the Bob Harrison Wellness Center on Pulaski Pike.
The 101-Mile Old Country Store Century travels directly north into Tennessee. At Kirkland the route crosses TN110 on Camargo Road. For the next 58 miles the riders are presented with a twisting, hilly, shaded and very scenic route up to and around the classic 1892 Delina Old Country Store at the top end of the course. The Old Country Store is so cool, we send riders by there twice. Famous for its burgers and Amish fried pies, riders stopping at Rest Stop 3 are guaranteed a significant calorie hit for the ride back to Huntsville. Don't load up too much because the route is peppered with numerous short, steep hills. The Century features 4100 feet of climbing over a unrelenting series of short hills, with almost no sustained climbs. Make sure your front derailleur is well lubricated and functional. Since this is Tennessee, pavement quality runs from billiard table smooth to abrasive chip seal, it is recommended to run 23 mm tires and sturdy rims. Narrow tires and delicate race rims may result in a visit from the SAG vehicle. When the course finally climbs out of the Coldwater Creek watershed at mile 84, it mercifully flattens out for the run back into Huntsville. The last few miles pass by the classic Carter's Cotton Gin. Five rest stops.

New for 2020! The 72-mile Gunter Hollow Road Cutoff crosses the Century course at 38 miles on Gunter Hollow Road and reconnects at Mile 63 of the Century route three miles later. This is a spectacular long ride without the strenuous upper loop up to Delina. Riders still get in a vigorous 2500 feet of vertical gain, most of it between miles 32 and 52. Three Rest Stops.
72-Mile Cue Sheet
The 62-Mile Coldwater Metric departs the century route after traveling the newly paved and densely hilly Clay Jones and Red Hill roads. The Metric traverses the across the middle of the Century Loop and rejoins at Coldwater Creek road at the fourth rest stop. It is a nice route with plenty of climbing for the middle 18-mile segment. 2260 feet of climbing. Three Rest Stops.

Our 38-Mile Loop is a quick spin around the quiet roads northern Madison county. Tour through the scenic cotton fields of Carter's Gin Road, a popular local cycling route. The route has been modified and extended to State Line Road so riders will see a short piece of Tennessee. See if you can spot the paths of the giant 1995 and 2011 tornadoes that struck that area. One rest stop at mile 24.
