The 34th Annual All You Can Eat Century returns for 2018!

NICA logo

The Alabama Backroads Century Series is dedicated to promoting the growth and development of long-distance cycling in the state of Alabama, encourage participation in established Alabama century (100-mile) rides, recognize and reward individual cyclists for their accomplishments, and benefit the charities and advocacy efforts supported by each of these events. 

It would not be the “All You Can Eat” Century without an epic post-ride meal which will be catered by Cyn Shea’s Cafe and Catering a division of Serving Hope Inc.  

The 2018 route, totally new in 2017, begins in Huntsville and travels straight north into middle Tennessee. Huntsville is so close to Tennessee that the three longer routes, even the half century, can reach the Coldwater Creek, TN watershed for some truly wonderful cycling!

Event proceeds benefit Serving Hope Inc., The Alabama Bicycle Coalition, Huntsville area NICA mountain bike teams, the SCCC Community Grant program, and future SCCC AYCE events.

Route Details


The 2018 All You Can Eat Century offers four all new routes with challenges suitable for riders of all abilities.  


Old Country Store Century – 102 Miles – This year’s century starts in north Huntsville on Pulaski Pike.  It heads directly north on mostly flat roads, but once you get to Tennessee, the character of the route changes dramatically as it heads into the Coldwater Creek watershed area.  The next 55 miles are peppered with frequent short hills and diversions into deep woods.  The highlight is the 50 and 61 mile-rest stop at the Old Delina Country Store.  It's so cool, we loop you by it twice!  This is a genuine general store, opened in 1892, a very significant year for the area. It is famous for its burgers and homemade Amish Fried Pies.  One of these and the calorie count is sufficient to fuel you all the way to the finish.  The Coldwater segment ends with a stiff climb back into Taft, TN.  The final 20 miles are mercifully flat with a series of scenic rolling hills as you return to Huntsville along Carter’s Gin Road. 


Coldwater Metric Century - 64 miles - This year’s Coldwater Metric Century departs from the 100-mile route at mile 31 on Molino Road.  Like the Century, the Metric returns to Taft, TN up the narrow and shaded Henry Thompson Road, for a surprisingly stiff 1.5-mile climb following the same roads back to the finish, allowing you to spin the junk from your legs after a bit of climbing. The metric as well as the full and half century follow an interesting profile, dipping down into the Coldwater TN watershed.

Taste of Tennessee Half Century - 52 miles – The 52-mile Coldwater Half Century departs the main route at 27 miles at the second rest stop in Kirkland, TN.  It quickly descends onto Coldwater Creek Road for a very pleasant spin through the valley.  The Half-Century rejoins the main loop at Pepper Road at mile 36.

The 34 Mile Loop is a quick spin around the quiet roads northern Madison county.
