The 9th annual Firefly Trail Ticket to Ride, and 3rd annual Firefly Trail Festival in Union Point, 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 festival events in conjunction with the ride.
