April 3, 2014
Samford University’s Howard College of Arts and Sciences will celebrate the 10th anniversary of its Old Howard 100 bike ride April 12.
The charity ride offers routes of 34, 43, 70 and 102 miles through three counties in Alabama’s historic Black Belt, where Samford was founded as Howard College in 1841. Proceeds from the ride benefit health care initiatives of Sowing Seeds of Hope in Perry County and have raised more than $30,000 to date.
The Old Howard 100 will begin and end on the grounds of Judson College in Marion. Registration will open at 8 a.m., with the ride starting at 9 a.m. In addition to rest stops and full SAG support by Cahaba Cycles and the Pell City Ham Radio team, ride organizers will provide a hot dog lunch starting at noon and a full dinner from 2 to 5 p.m.
