Bicycling the St. Simons and Jekyll Islands

Unique bicycling programs designed for travelers age 50+!

Set amid coastal marshlands of swaying cordgrass and studded with lighthouses, former plantations and Gilded Age mansions, the Golden Isles of Georgia mark not only the meeting of the coast and the Atlantic, but also of the native peoples, Spanish missionaries, African slaves and wealthy vacationers who have all played parts in coastal Georgia’s history. From the Tiffany window in Faith Chapel to the historic Jekyll Island Club to the lush maritime forest, take in St. Simons and Jekyll islands by bike.

“The St. Simons and Jekyl Islands trip was my third Road Scholar trip and the best all around of the three. Excellent accommodations, superb group leaders, great weather and an entertaining group of companions!”

— Fred from Peninsula, OH
