Event description

Description

Route: Meet at Columbus Circle, USS Maine Monument, and ride through Central Park to the Museum of the City of New York at Fifth Avenue & 103rd St.

Our organization is called WE Bike NYC -- so when a NYC museum features Bikes, WE must go!

This fall, WE're riding to the Museum of the City of New York's 2019 exhibit "Cycling in the City: A 200-Year History".

Join us on a short ride through Central Park, ending at the Museum on Fifth Avenue & 103rd St., and then enjoy the exhibit and the rest of the museum for as long as you wish.

"Cycling in the City" traces the bike’s transformation of urban transportation and leisure and explores the extraordinary diversity of cycling cultures in the city, past and present. The exhibition reveals the complex, creative, and often contentious relationship between New York and the bicycle, while underscoring the importance of cycling as the city confronts climate change, energy scarcity, and population growth in the years to come.

Please RSVP. We have a limited number of free passes, so we will give them to attendees on a first-come, first-served basis. Museum admission is $20.

WE can also offer a limited number of free Citi Bikes for the ride from Columbus Circle to the Museum. If you want a bike, please email us at info@webikenyc.org by 9/24.

Please bring a lock for your bike. Helmets are required. This is a one-way ride.

**Note:** This event is open to women, female-identifying and gender nonconforming people only.
