Start this rocking ride at Lulu’s, home of fried crab claws, then trace white-sand beaches and scout for protected turtles along the southern end of Mobile Bay. Catch the $5 ferry to tiny Dauphin Island, then head home for a total of 40 easy miles. Hell, end it at Lulu’s too, because owner Lucy Buffett brings in great live music and “sometimes her brother, Jimmy, drops in,” says Kirk Iverson of the East Alabama Cycling Club.
