Jekyll Island Ramble offers a great cycle for the whole family, as it is the smallest barrier island that is accessible to the public. By state law only 35 percent of the land can be developed, so 65 percent of the land is untouched making this ride very scenic. This is simply the best coastal cycle in all of Georgia. Be aware that because this is a very popular vacation destination so traffic may be heavy during the summer months.
