The 12th Annual Ride is happening:

Saturday, May 8, 2021 at

The Lodge @ Gulf State Park

The Good Life Ride is a fun bicycle ride that takes place the Saturday of Mother's Day weekend in scenic coastal Alabama!


This year, we are offering free enhanced experiences for people who book their stay @ The Lodge on Thursday, Friday, and/or Saturday night(s) so they can learn more about our environment.


 We are limiting the number of registrations--which are free for people who reserve using our hotel discount link--to 100 and will follow CDC guidelines to prevent the spread of Covid. 


The Ride will start at 8:00am and wrap up by 11:00am.

We do not have an after party, but you can pick up

a box lunch and eat with a great view!!

As in the past, the 2021 Good Life Ride will help raise awareness for bicycle safety.

For more information about that and to help, please visit the Coastal Alabama Livable Communities Coalition page:
