The 30thAnnual Challenge of the Centuries Bike Ride will be held on May 23, 2020 in Hartwell, GA. The ride is always held on the weekend before Memorial Day.
For the first time ever we are doing just the Saturday ride, a preference indicated by our participants. A number of exciting enhancements have been added to make the event a lot of fun.
The rides are: Smith-McGee Sojourn-37miles, Ruckersville Ramble-100 Kilometers, and the Calhoun Falls Century-100 miles. The rides will start and finish in historic downtown Hartwell on Depot Street. After the rides there will be a celebration in the Southern Hart Brewery event room on the square. The ride fee includes food and soft drinks at the celebration. Beer and wine are extra.
All three rides will go over the beautiful Hartwell Dam. It provides a spectacular view and has been a favorite of our riders all these years.
As usual the Bell Family YMCA (281 Opal Ext, Hartwell, GA 30643) will be available from Friday May 22 at 5:00PM until Saturday May 23 at 6:00PM for overnight camping on the soccer field as well as in the gym. Showers and restroom facilities are available there as usual. There will be two pickle ball courts available in the gym.
The ride staging area and on-site registration will be at a new location. The location is in the parking lot behind  the First United Methodist Church (200 E. Howell Street, Hartwell, GA 30643). The parking lot is approximately 300 yards from the start and finish lines on Depot Street.
The Bell Family YMCA is located .7 miles south of the Methodist Church staging area.
The ride fee is $40 until December 1 when it will increase to $45. There will be incremental increases after that. Only those who pre-register before May 2 will be guaranteed a ride tee shirt. The fee also includes food and soft drinks at the post-ride celebration. Those who have family and friends who are not riding but want to attend the celebration may purchase an identifying wristband for $10 which will entitle them to food and soft drinks.
 The Challenge of the Centuries ride has been the major fund raiser for the Hartwell Kiwanis Club for 30 years. Hartwell Kiwanis’s major emphasis is assisting the youth of our Community.
