Join us on a ride to historic Ladew Gardens, one of the top five gardens in North America. I bet you didn’t realize such wonders were so close to home. Please arrive at the departure location with a full fuel tank a little early to sign in and for pre-ride instructions. The ride will depart Panera Bread - Golden Ring at 9:00 am to take back roads though the scenic Loch Raven watershed to visit the gardens. Bring sun block, comfortable walking shoes and prepare to have fun. Beautiful gardens, amazing topiary, bird watching, café lunch and much, much more.
Admission is $18.00 for House, Gardens, and Nature Walk, or $13.00 for the Gardens and Nature Walk only. Hours are 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Ride ends upon arrival at the gardens.
