Bike Race 446109 1920

Bicyclists will hop on their bikes June 15 to ride on the Highway to Hale – a bike ride starting at Moundville Archaeological Park that will wind through much of Hale County.

The event consists of four distances: a 25-mile out-and-back, a 38-mile loop through Akron, a 69-mile loop through Greensboro and the Talladega National Forest and a 100-plus mile ride that makes a large figure eight covering most of Hale County.

Highway to Hale is an initiative of the American Advertising Federation of Tuscaloosa and it the funds raised go to benefit local causes.

“The bike ride benefits two scholarships for students at the University of Alabama in the College of Communication and Information Sciences, and it also benefits the Boys and Girls Club of West Alabama,’” said Tabitha Bostick, who serves with the AAF.
