Location: Montgomery AL, at the Capitol steps
Organized By: Selma50Ride@MgmBikeClub.org

Event Description:

CommeThe Montgomery Bicycle Club invites you to join us as we commemorate the historic 50th Anniversary Montgomery to Selma March with a Bicycle Ride. Come pedal the Historic Selma-to-Montgomery Voters Rights March Route on Saturday, February 21, 2015. The ride is fully supported and will include sag and mechanical support and fully stocked rest stops.

While riding the trail, we encourage you to stop and see the sights, envision the march, feel the tension, cross the bridge, follow the paths of the foot soldiers, and end in triumph...
The journey will begin with a photo in Montgomery at the Capitol steps. We will load buses and bikes to head over to Selma's Riverfront Park on Water Avenue. We will travel as a group
 to the Edmund Pettus Bridge for a picture and group start. 
You will follow US Highway 80 to the Lowndes Interpretative Center that is strategically placed near the site of historic "Tent City" approximately midway between Selma and Montgomery, in White Hall. The Interpretive Center will be the site of a rest stop. We invite you to take time and tour the Interpretive Centerenter before you head to the next stop.
Afterward, travel along Hwy 80 to Montgomery and stop along the way to visit each Trail marker that interprets another tidbit of the march. When you enter Montgomery continue to follow the Trail signs throughout the city to visit other historic civil rights sites. Your adventure concludes at the steps of the Alabama State Capitol where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and a host of others addressed a crowd of 25,000 people in support of voting rights for all.
