The Birmingham Hammerfest fueled by BOLT24 is returning to Birmingham, August 14-15! USA CRITS D1 pro cycling teams from all over the US will be racing through the streets of Pepper Place. Amateurs, juniors and hand cyclists will be tackling the same course as the pros and putting their skills to the test. The weekend includes something for all ages with a Kids Zone, Community Hour, dog parade, food trucks and more!
Hammerfest has also teamed up with the Lakeshore Foundation, a 501©3 non-profit organization with a mission to encourage and provide opportunities for people with disability to live a healthy lifestyle through activity, research, advocacy and health promotion. The 2021 event will include a handcycling race on Saturday and the inclusion of handcycles on Sunday. The Hammer Ride on Sunday, August 15th offers two FREE rides for cyclists beginning and ending at Cahaba Brewing with a social hour and entertainment to follow. Riders are encouraged to fundraise with 100% of rider-raised dollars going to support the Lakeshore Foundation.
We invite the community to join us for a fun-filled weekend and to help us support the Lakeshore Foundation as they work to provide healthy, active lifestyles for people with disabilities.
