POSTPONED TO A LATER DATE
The 9th Annual Firefly Trail Ticket to Ride, 3rd annual Union Point Firefly Trail Festival and 2nd
Annual Firefly FunFest in Athens will be held Saturday, March 28, to raise funds and awareness
for the effort to enhance health, safety, active transportation, community pride and economic
opportunity by creating a 39-mile, multi-purpose rail-trail from Athens to Union Point.
The Ticket to Ride is a mass participation bicycle event held on paved roads close to the future
route of the trail, which will be built on or near the historic corridor of the Georgia Railroad
Athens Branch. An event for fun and awareness, the non-competitive ride features options up
to 83 miles, beautiful countryside, friendly towns, on-road vehicle support, and restrooms,
snacks and beverages every 9-10 miles.
Each terminus of the future trail – Dudley Park in Athens and downtown Union Point – will host
festivals in conjunction with the ride.
Whether you want to ride 16 miles or 83, you are welcome on the Ticket to Ride!
