The prestigious and extremely well-supported Glassner Autumn Challenge rolls out in Pintlala, Alabama, a small, rural community located in South Montgomery County that is easily accessible from Interstate 65 and US Highway 31. It is about 16 miles south of the Alabama State Capitol located in downtown Montgomery, Alabama. How challenging do you want your ride? Pick from the Easy Eights 16, Smell the Roses 30, the Fabulous Fives 55, the Mad Metric Century 62, or the Courageous Century 100. No matter what distance you choose, you will be biking the beautiful, tree-lined, rural roads of central Alabama, with mechanical support, sag wagons, and rest stops supplied with plenty of fruit, light snacks, water, and sports drinks. The short routes offer gently rolling hills, while the longer routes offer moderately rolling hills. The routes will be clearly marked and will keep you on beautiful rural roads. The ride will begin and end at Pintlala Baptist Church where your day starts with a delicious all-you-can-eat pancake (and much more!) breakfast. The Century Route takes you right by a great lunch spot - Red's Little School House. When you return be ready for some old fashioned southern hospitality with tomato sandwiches and ice cream!
