It's time to bring that old bike out of storage in the garage, knock off the dust, oil the chains, pump up the tires and check the brakes. The Jimmy Carter National Historic Site is partnering with the River Valley Regional Commission and the Andersonville National Historic Site to host the first Park-to-Park bike ride from the Andersonville National Historic Site, through Americus, GA, to the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site on April 27, 2013 during National Park Week.

What better way to start off the warm season than with a bike ride through Sumter County to rejuvenate your passion for the open road. The ride will begin at the National Prisoner of War Museum parking lot located at the Andersonville National Historic Site, continuing through historic Downtown Americus, Georgia and on to the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site in Plains, Georgia. That's not all though; this year the ride boasts the option of a full loop back to Andersonville with an additional rest stop in Ellaville, GA.

Registration will begin at 8:00am at the Andersonville National Historic Site.

$15 for the half ride to Plains (includes a shuttle back to Andersonville)
$20 for the full ride (includes a lunch voucher)

Rest stops will be provided along the way as well as a support vehicle for minor mechanical issues and first aid.
