The Johnny Ray Century is a Cycling race in Opelika, Alabama consisting of a 100 Miles.
The Opelika Bicycle Advisory Committee brings you its annual Johnny Ray Century benefitting the Davis Phinney Foundation for Parkinson's Disease. An initiative of the East Alabama Cycling Club, the century travels the quiet but often rough backroads of Lee, Chambers, and Randolph counties, following the famous 19th-century Central of Georgia spur. Riders cross the old railroad bed in Lafayette. The 105-mile century option takes riders into downtown Roanoke where Johnny Ray himself, its famed conductor, is believed buried.
Changes to the route decrease exposure to the most rugged road conditions and busy highways. All 4 courses return past beloved Opelika landmarks as riders cruise down the city's new "Destination Downtown"Keep Reading
