Marion Countryside Ride
The Annual Marion Countryside Ride is held on the first Saturday in April and starts at 9:00 that morning, departing from Courthouse Square. The ride offers three routes designed to appeal to everyone, from the casual rider to the most experienced cyclist. The longest route travels through area farmland to the Big River Crossing, the longest pedestrian bridge spanning the Mississippi River. The Big River Crossing and the excitement of downtown Memphis are only 12 miles from the center of the small town of Marion.
Registration fees are $40 for adults and $20 for youth (aged 12 and under). Early registrants receive bonuses, so check for information and register early!
