There are four changes to the 2018 Alabama Backroads Century Series, which kicks off with the incoming Restoration Ride out of Childersburg on March 17.
As it did in 2017 for the first time, the series concludes with Mobile's Gear & Beers: Bayou 100 in Mobile on November 10.
The other rides dropping out are the early season pair of Tour Autauga and Tour de Blue, and Montgomery's Cycling For Sight.
In their place are Highway 2 Hale, based in Moundville, The Children's Home Challenge in Talladega and the returning All You Can Eat Century, in Huntsville.
Each of the events in the series awards Centurion medals to finishers.
Those who complete the "Challenge" of riding four events receive an embroidered patch and those riding 10 centuries earn an ABCS "Champion" jersey from Primal.
A roll of honor of all finishers is maintained on the homepage of the ABCS.
