Second Sunday Ride

  • Providence Canyon (map)

Providence Canyon and Florence Marina State Parks (Georgia)

Take mom for a bike ride on one of our most popular Mothers Day rides.

We'll carpool about an hour from Auburn to Providence Canyon State Park and park the cars. A nine-mile, mostly downhill ride to Florence Marina State Park, where we'll have a picnic lunch. Those who want can visit the Kirbo Interpretive Center that has displays and a short movie. Then a nine–mile return ride back to Providence Canyon with its own Visitor Center and optional hike into the canyon.

On the way to Providence Canyon, we'll park a car at Florence Marina to hold everyone's picnic lunches and for any family/friends who would rather not ride uphill back to Providence Canyon.

Date: Sunday, May 10.
Time: 9:00 AM
Meet at: Auburn High School.
Road conditions: All paved. Any bikes/tires are good.
Bring: Water. Snacks. Picnic lunch. Walking shoes if you walk the Canyon. $5 car parking fee good at either park.
