The East Alabama Cycling Club (EACC) is holding the 10th Annual Johnny Ray Century For Parkinson’s Disease bicycle ride. Over the last decade the EACC has raised tens of thousands of dollars for Parkinson’s research. The EACC Johnny Ray Century expects around two hundred riders.

This year the Johnny Ray Century is to benefit the Davis Phinney Foundation. Davis Phinney is an olympic cyclist who contracted parkinson’s and started the foundation to help with Parkinson’s research.

This year the highlight is the participation of a number of Wounded Warrior cyclists, former and current members of the armed forces who will be participating in the bicycle ride. Registration is open on-line and day-of-the-event. Register on the website at www.eastalabamacyclingclub.com/johnnyraycentury/.

The 10th Annual Johnny Ray Century starts and ends in Lee County with portions of the course through the confines of the northern Auburn City limits, continues through, Chambers and Randolph counties with rest stops in Opelika, Waverly, Lafayette, and Roanoke. The event’s namesake, “The Johnny Ray,” is after an old time steam train that ran in the late 1800′s and early 1900′s from Lee County to Roanoke.
