Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

The National Parks Service and Georgia Department of Natural Resources are partnering on a 3-day, 2-night bike ride through central Georgia this fall.

The event runs Nov. 9 through Nov. 11. It's part of Georgia State Parks' "Get Outdoors Georgia" program and President Barack Obama's "America's Great Outdoors" initiative.

Riders will spend Friday night at Florence Marina State Park and cycle to the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site the next day. A train will take them to Veterans Memorial State Park to spend Saturday night.

On Sunday, they will ride to Andersonville National Historic Site and then back to the Jimmy Carter National Historic Site.

As part of the event, former President Jimmy Carter will speak Saturday at a Veterans Day commemoration in Plains.

Registration information is available at GeorgiaStateParks.org/BikeAdventure.
