Friends, family, cyclists! Celebrate the beauty and ease of travel on one of the nation’s oldest and most scenic pathways. On this peak-of-fall Sunday morning, we’ll ride from Memorial Park in Irvington-on-Hudson south on the Old Croton Aqueduct (OCA), over to the County Trailway north, across the Tarrytown Reservoir trail and back down to our starting point just in time for Aquefest!—the trail-long celebration of the OCA.
Visit the SWEAC Complete Streets table on the OCA. And enjoy Aquefest events, local shops, cafés and restaurants after the ride.
Registration Table: Located on the OCA at Memorial Park at Dows Lane (site of Irvington Aquefest). Parking is available at the Dows Lane School.
Commuter, Hybrid, Mountain, and Cross Bikes are best for varied road and trail surfaces that include roots, rocks and curbs without ramps. Helmet and registration are required.
