Overview

This event is part of the Explore NYC activity series, see the link below for more exciting activities like this. Travelling on two wheels in NYC can be intimidating. But, in the last 10 years, NYC has elevated its status by laying down hundreds of miles of bike paths and launching the nation's largest bike share program. Now, we're one of the top 10 most bike-friendly cities in the country! This ride is great for beginners, especially for those who have hesitated in the past to hit the road; we'll be practicing safety-in-numbers. We'll meet in the center of the fountain at Columbus Circle at 9:30 a.m. for a 10:00 a.m. departure heading west to the Hudson bike path before turning south to circle the city counter-clockwise. We'll ride at a leisurely 12 mph with occasional stops for water, restrooms, points of interest, and photo-ops for a total of 32 miles. Halfway or noon - whichever comes first, we'll take a longer break for lunch (packing a lunch is recommended since we may be a distance from food). Bad weather cancels. Registrants will be notified by email if the ride is off. If you are unsure, please contact the leader. We will follow all road rules and common courtesies such as stopping at ALL reds and riding single-file in busier areas. Helmets are required for this ride, no exceptions! Please bring appropriate repair items (e.g. pump, spare tube, patch kit) - you don't want have to walk to a bike shop because of a thumbtack in your tire. All bike types are welcome! Questions? Please contact Justin Bailey (jbailey@outdoors.org)
