Event description

Description

Join the Bronx River Alliance Greenway Team for a friendly 23-mile ride along the Bronx River Greenway. Ride along New York City's only freshwater river from the estuary of the Bronx River in Soundview, to its source at the Kensico Dam in Westchester County.

The ride will begin at
Sounview Park Field House (located near the corner of Lafayette Ave & Colgate Ave) at 9:30AM and will include two rest stops before reaching the Kensico Dam in Westchester County, where we will have lunch at aproximately 1PM.

Participants can also partake in the return trip to the Soundview Park Field House, where we will arrive at approximately 6PM, depending on our pace, or exit the ride whenever or wherever safe and convenient. Keep in mind that the return trip will mark a total of 46-miles.

About two-thirds of the ride will take place on protected bicycle paths. However, the ride will also include navigating streets with vehicles, and so we recommend this ride for adult riders that are comfortable sharing traffic on a city street.

We'd like to thank our partners for assisting us in making this event possible! For more information about them and what they do, please follow their links below:

FAQs

What can I bring into the event?

You will need to bring your own bicycle and helmet for this event. Come dressed in light, moveable and breathable clothes and if possible, pack lightly as heavy equipment can prove difficult to carry throughout the length of this ride. Feel free to bring a bottle of water and/or snacks, while keeping in mind that we will have rest stops along the ride where riders will have the option of purchasing drinks or snacks from local stores.


Please make sure you tune up your bike before the ride and bring spare tubes if you have any, in case of flat tires. For instructional videos on these tasks, follow links below:
