Old Howard Bike Ride
A participant in the Old Howard Bike Ride coasts into Selma's First Baptist Church parking lot for the final rest stop of the three-county Black Belt route.
Sponsored by Birmingham's Samford University Howard College of Arts and Sciences, the Saturday event benefited Sowing Seeds of Hope, a mission that seeks to improve the quality of life in nearby Perry County. Samford University was originally founded by Alabama Baptists as Howard College in 1841 in the Perry County seat of Marion. The ride began and ended at Marion's Judson College.
In the background is Church Street United Methodist Church.
