There were a total of 21 adults and children, some with their own bicycles and some using bikes from the Bike New York fleet. Joining me on the ride was Rich Conroy, Education Director at Bike New York. Janet Falk, a member of the Roosevelt Island Historical Society, led the tour around the island.

Everyone agreed they learned a lot about the island's history! After the ride, we went to Main Street Sweets for a hot beverage, which was nice because the weather was FREEZING that day! We plan a spring bike tour and will announce it when the date is determined.
