    Was I dreaming

    or was there a century in Northeast Alabama called the three hill challenge? I can not find it listed in rides section on the SCCC website (Huntsville AL). If memory serves me correctly it was run in April last year (2007, dont know about 2008) It started and ended in Huntsville but came across MonSanto, Grant and Keel mountains. I was hoping to ride it next year but now it seams to have disapeared. Any one know anything?

    Thanks for the link Ed, some good info in it. Unfortunately, the ride I was looking for was not listed for 2009. Maybe someone will remember it and chime in. Lot of good it will do if it is no longer a ride but I am courious.

    Thanks Bob! bummer too, I wasnt in good enough shape to ride it when I first got my bike 2 years ago. At the rate I am improving I think I could do it next spring. Shame to miss a century that runs through my back yard (well almost). Maybe it will be a go next year? Wonder why it got nixed. Seemed like it was a fairly popular ride. It was a little too cool that time of year IIRC but late May would be a great time to scedual it.
