​The Plains Peanut Festival featuring President Jimmy Carter is one of the highlights of every year in Georgia. There are two opportunities for riders of all levels and skills to join the fun. The Big One starts at the Georgia Veterans State Park and you'll ride your bike 45 miles through beautiful Georgia countryside through Americus and onto historic Plains. Starting at the new Americus Train Depot, ride your bike 14 miles to the historic and exciting Plains Peanut Festival.
