We’ll see Manhattan from bottom to top on the Waterfront Greenway
Here’s one of our annual bike rides you don’t want to miss. And one of the best on our short list of great rides.
This is a 28.8-mile ride–mostly on paved bike path, but partly on city streets–around the perimeter of Manhattan Island. We’ll start at 9 am in Battery Park after taking the ferry from our parking spot on Staten Island. We’ll head up the Hudson Rive Greenway (it’s like a highway for bikes) and go under the GW bridge. We have to cross some city streets at the top of Manhattan, but they’re marked off with bike lanes. Then it’s down the Harlem River and the East River (with some more city streets on the way) through South Street Seaport and back to Battery Park.
Along the way you’ll see some amazing views of skylines and bridges… and some parts of Manhattan that you’ve probably never seen. Bring a road bike, mountain bike, or hybrid. It’s mostly flat with a few hills at the north and east sides of the ride.
The whole ride, with stoppage time, should be about 4-1/2 hours. We can plan a pub lunch at South Street Seaport if anyone is interested.
RSVP early to let us know how many people we’ll be coordinating. And, as usual, invite friends!
