Second Sunday Rides in April -- Wabbits and Ducks!
Sunday, April 12 – Opelika Wood Duck Heritage Preserve and Opelika Floral Trail
The 73-acre Opelika Wood Duck Heritage Preserve and Siddique Nature Park was created from a nutrient-rich intentional wetland owned by the city of Opelika, with an additional 7 acres of land including an old home-site. The park has become home to a significant population of birds, including a large population of wood ducks.
We'll park the bikes at the Preserve and walk about one mile to and from the duck blind. Then continue riding to downtown Opelika, through some of the Opelika Azalea and Dogwood Trail then on to a local restaurant for a snack/lunch, then back to Auburn.
At 2:00 pm, the Opelika Bicycle Committee is hosting a bike ride through more of the Opelika Azalea and Dogwood Trail. You might want to go back to Opelika to do that ride for more of their fine flowers.
Date: Sunday, April 12. 9:00 AM
Meet at: Auburn High School.
Road conditions: All paved. Any bikes/tires are good.
Bring: Water. Walking shoes. Snacks. Treasure for lunch afterwards.
