The Bronx River Alliance is hosting the Boogie Up the Bronx River bike ride on Saturday, August 27, 2016.
Join the Bronx River Alliance Greenway Team for a friendly bike ride of the full length of the Bronx River. Our “One-Way” option is a friendly 23-mile ride while more advanced riders might enjoy the “Roundtrip” 46-mile ride along the Bronx River Greenway. The ride starts at the estuary of the Bronx River and continues to its source at the Kensico Dam in Westchester County. The “Roundtrip” ride will return to the starting point at Soundview Park in the Bronx.
We will gather at 9am at the Soundview Park Field House (on Lafayette Avenue near Colgate Avenue). Nearest subway stop #6 Elder Ave. The ride will start promptly 9:30am. The Ride will break for approximately 45 minutes at the Kensico Dam Plaza – bring your own lunch or purchase lunch on site. The “One-Way” ride (23 miles) will be available by peeling off to the Valhalla Metro North train station.
Recommended for adult riders with some experience riding on streets with shared car traffic. Roughly two-thirds is on bike paths, with some riding on city streets.
Speed- We will ride at a steady and comfortable pace and plan to get to the Kensico Dam by 1pm. We are riding along the MetroNorth Harlem line and there are stations at most towns.
