About The Event
Come along on a leisurely bike excursion through downtown Ocean Springs led by our Education Director, Tony DiFatta.

Then, take a pedal-powered tour to a variety of Ocean Springs hot spots and historic sites, including a special tour of Walter Anderson’s cottage at Shearwater Pottery with the artist's son, John Anderson. Snacks included; loaner bikes available upon request. Cost: $20; $10 Members
