Begins at Mullet Point Park on Baldwin County Road #1, which is 5 miles south of the Grand Hotel in Point Clear, AL.

Sunday, May 24th: Ride at Five

Sunday, May 24th – 5:00 p.m.   Fairhope Pier/Bluff to Grand Hotel

EST  Meeting on the bluff above the Fairhope Pier, near the Marietta Johnson statue.  We will ride south along the Eastern Shore Trail toward Point Clear’s Grand Hotel, making a stop at the Confederate Rest Cemetery in honor of all Soldiers this Memorial Day Weekend.

 

This is about an 8 mile route, depending on side-trips.  Sunset is at 7:40’ish, so bring some after-ride refreshments and a folding chair or blanket and we’ll enjoy the sunset together after our ride.

ALSO:   Bring your summer calendars or dates for summer events.  We’ll be planning our rides for all of June & July, so that they can be posted in advance for the summer. – molly
