The Fifth Annual Lincoln Metric Century Superspeedway Bike Ride is Saturday.
“We are looking forward to this year’s ride,” said Lincoln Parks and Recreation Department Director Roben Duncan. “Last year we had more than 90 cyclists.”
Duncan said the event features a 25-mile ride, a 40-mile ride and a metric century ride, 100 kilometers, or 62 miles. Registration is $40 per cyclist. Registration is at 6 a.m. and the ride begins at 7 a.m. at the International Motorsports Hall of Fame. There is a free Hall of Fame tour for all paid riders.
The ride begins at the Talladega Superspeedway with one lap around the track, which is 2.66 miles.
“There is also a Family Fun Ride, which includes one lap around the Talladega Superspeedway track,” she said. “The Family Fun Ride is $20 per cyclist.”
Duncan said more than 30 people have already registered for this year’s ride.
“Most people register the day of the ride due to Alabama weather,” she said.
Duncan said the route is a little different this year, but there aren’t many changes.
“We will have rest stops, sag vehicles, free IMHF tour tickets and a post-ride meal, excellent radio communications and door prizes donated by local businesses,” she said. “Everyone who pre-registered is guaranteed a T-shirt, and then we will give the rest away while supplies last. All riders will receive a hospitality bag.”
