What Riders Say about Ridgeland

"Last week, my cousin and I had a chance to visit and stay in your city as we made our way north, cycling on the Natchez Trace. Inclement weather forced us to stay an extra day in Ridgeland; this was not a problem. Your city has an excellent cycling infrastructure as well as friendly citizens who were more than willing to help a couple of strangers find their way around. I don't have to tell you what a nightmare getting on the Trace can be in the mornings, and that the bike/pedestrian path that runs along the Trace was a godsend! Thank you, Mr. Mayor, and the wonderful people of Ridgeland for making our time in your fair city something to remember with fondness. I look forward to staying with y'all on our trip next year!"

- Mark, Alabama
