Bicycling is a great way to bring people together for both some fun and a little bit of exercise, and there’s no better time to take a ride in Mississippi than during the fall.
Without a doubt, one of the best regions in Mississippi to take a bike ride is along the state’s coastline. Any time of day, you ride your bike while also watching the sun reflect off the beautiful Gulf of Mexico.
If you’re a morning person, the sun rising over the Gulf to start a brand new day is both gorgeous and inspiring. Afternoons are great, as well, to see the sun high in the sky as you cruise along the beach line, and what makes the coastline a great place for a bike ride is the wooden planked trail for bikers, walkers, and runners. It’s always a smooth ride and not to mention the cool breeze coming off the water.
Personally, I enjoy riding the coast at sunset. There’s nothing like watching pink, purple, and orange fill the sky as the sun dips down into the ocean. There’s also plenty of spots to put the kickstand down and really take in the sun going down.
Aside from the coastline, there are some other great locations to break out the bike and take in some nature. Take your pick of the plethora of trails throughout the area. Here are a few worth considering:
- The Live Oaks Bicycle Route in Ocean Springs
- Historic Pascagoula Bike Trail
- Bethel South Trails in Saucier
