32.6 miles round trip
Gulf Shores and Orange Beach are home to 32 miles of sugar-white sand beaches; and that’s what you’ll experience on our Island Time Ride. Stretching from the westernmost end of the island at Fort Morgan State Historic Site to the Alabama-Florida state line at the legendary “roadhouse” Flora-Bama, riders will explore all of the sights, sounds and delicious flavors found on Alabama’s coast.
