Bronx River Bike Tour
September 18, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm$21.99
Did you know that the Bronx River is NYC’s only true fresh water river? It was considered as a source for NYC’s drinking water in the 1830’s but was labelled “an open sewer” by the end of that century. The river has made a comeback since the days of reckless dumping and now supports many forms of aquatic life like Alewife Herring and even a beaver named “Jose.”
The ride is 17 miles long and will take 3 hours. 7 miles of the tour will be on the Bronx River Parkway which is open to bikes for Bicycle Sundays.
The tour starts at the Williamsbridge Oval and finishes at the Kensico Dam in Valhalla. The ride is 17 miles long and will take 3 hours (12 mph pace). 7 miles of the ride will be on the Bronx River Parkway as it is opened to bikes for Bicycle Sundays.
Metro North train service is available from Valhalla for the return trip.
Rain date: None, Sunday Sept 25
