Hammer Ride

The Hammer Ride consists of FREE 30 and 60-mile supported rides beginning and ending at Cahaba Brewing Company with 100% of rider-raised dollars going to support and bring awareness to the Lakeshore Foundation’s youth and adult cycling programs. Enjoy a social hour with food and beverages and entertainment following the rides.


The ride begins at 12pm and is for all levels of cyclists – you go at your pace!  We will announce winners so anyone wanting to participate in the race portion will start in the front, while people more interested in training will start towards the back.   Parking is available near the start of the race at 4500 5th Ave S Building C, Birmingham, AL 35222.  CLICK HERE to register for the Hammer Ride.
