August 25th – SATURDAY Ride on Dauphin Island. We will meet at the Ft. Morgan Ferry Landing and ride across Mobile Bay to Dauphin Island. We will be exploring the paved trails on Dauphin Island and making a lunch stop along the way.
For any who would like to carpool or at least caravan together from the Eastern Shore, we will meet in the Fred’s parking lot in Fairhope (way out by the trees) at 7:45 a.m. Expect an hour+ trip to Ft. Morgan from Fairhope (remembering that Ft. Morgan is 25 miles west of Gulf Shores.) We’ll leave our vehicles parked at the landing and take the 9:30 a.m. Ferry from Ft. Morgan to Dauphin Island. There is a fare of $8.00 round-trip to ride the ferry. For more information regarding the Ferry, Click HERE.
Kathy D., our “trip leader” for the day, has a delightful route planned for us. She’s made this trek before and is familiar with the route. Bring plenty of water and snacks, if you’d like. We will plan on a lunch stop at a local restaurant on the Island. Expect this to be a long day’s adventure, but probably no more than 10 miles or so of riding, all at a very flat elevation. Hope to see you Saturday!
