Approx. 8 miles
Join Bike New York for a ride up the East River Esplanade in Manhattan! We'll take the tram from Roosevelt Island over to Manhattan before heading north on the paved path right next to the river. We'll break at Carl Schurz Park for a few minutes before heading up to a community garden at 96th Street where we'll hear about Friends of the East River Esplanade, a non-profit organization that is working restore and reinvent the esplanade from 60th to 120th Streets. From there we will continue north, taking the bike path over to Randall's Island for an easy loop before heading back to Roosevelt Island via the esplanade. Brunch to follow on Roosevelt Island for those who are interested! All participants must bring their own bikes and helmets. This ride is free and open to the Roosevelt Island community!
In order to participate, residents must send me an email with their contact information and the information for an emergency contact. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. There are only a few spots left! I will send out a detailed email to all registered participants on Friday.You can also take a cyber ride from Astoria and around Roosevelt Island
