The 25-Mile Ride:
A leisurely ride tailored to every age and skill level. You will ride at approximately 11 mph on flat, open stretches. This ride goes through the Bronx Greenway bike paths, historic districts, the Bronx shoreline, parklands and various neighborhoods. Ride marshals and police escort this route to help ensure comfort, and of course, safety. It's a one-of-a-kind experience and a great way to see the Bronx.
There is an option for a 40-mile loop without safety cells (riding with traffic), for the group benefit will do a leisurely-paced 25-mile ride
Rain date: Sunday, October 26.
After the ride, we'll either picnic at the NY Botanical Garden or go to a local pub for drinks - I'll let you know closer to the date.
