Isle of Hope

This is our guide, Sarah, handing out lemons and limes for our water bottles this morning as we prepared to ride.

Ready to bike through historic Savannah then on to the Isle of Hope.

The Isle of Hope was established as a retreat in the nineteenth century for the elite of Savannah. It provided a refuge from the intense heat and outbreaks of malaria in the summer months.

We continued on to the Wormsloe Plantation which is where the first settlers in the area made their homes.

We rode down Wormsloe's 1.5 mile oak avenue - the longest tree-lined driveway in the world.

We were supposed to stop in the Bonaventure Cemetery, but it was closed due to severe hurricane damage.
