Ride Schedule and Routes
Our Rise & Shine Bread Ride launches from the RideSouth shop at 7:30 AM, year round. We have at least two routes so everyone can participate. Choose the Bay Ride for a relaxing 12-25 mile ride through the Pelahatchie Bay area, mostly on bike trails! Choose the 36 mile Rez Ride for a spirited ride around the beautiful Ross Barnett Reservoir, including a scenic stretch along the Natchez Trace! Return by 10:00 AM for a slice of hot, freshly made oat bran bread, right out of the oven, or add some miles on your own and explore Rankin County! In the short Mississippi winter, some riders delay launching till 10:00 AM when it has warmed up a bit.
On Sundays at 2:00 PM from the RideSouth shop, Bay Rides are popular, as is the Yogi Ride, a 40 mile loop with some great hills! The ride turns at Yogi Bear Park in Pelahatchie and includes some great rural roads in Rankin County! Call ahead to find out the route of the day or just show up and ride!
Often we launch from the RideSouth shop at 7:30 AM or 6:00 PM. The Sunrise Series runs through the summer on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday mornings. The Sunset Series runs on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Call ahead the day before to see if rides are planned and discuss the route scheduled.
Some annual events to watch for are the Natchez or Bust Ride in October, the Birthday Celebration Ride in early November, the Signature Ride in late March, the Memorial Day Trike Tribute and many other events throughout the year. We also enjoy riding in the Ridgeland Christmas Parade in early December and the Crewe of Nereids Mardi GRAS parade in Waveland! Lots of fun and challenging events for everyone!
If you have a favorite ride you want to help organize and conduct, let us know about it and we will help!
