START: East River Greenway entrance @ 60th St. & York Ave. – meet at the lower dog run inside this entrance

FINISH: Same as Start

Please join us for a 29-mile guided bike ride through 5 Islands of New York City – Manhattan, Randall’s & Ward’s Islands, Queens, and Roosevelt Island. The route will head north from the starting point up to the High Bridge (NEW this year!), South through the Bronx (NEW!), across the Randall’s Island Connector (NEW!) around Randall’s & Ward’s islands, then over the Triboro/RFK bridge into Queens, south to Roosevelt Island and then finally either by Tram, F train, or via the Queensboro bridge, back into Manhattan. We intend to make stops at several locations along the route to discuss notable events and landmarks including a visit to the new Four Freedoms Park on the southern end of Roosevelt Island. The ride will proceed at an easy-going pace of 10 – 13 MPH. Please bring what you’ll need such as water, snacks, a spare tire, and PLEASE wear a helmet. We usually ride rain or shine but if the weather is particularly unpleasant, you will receive a cancellation email by 7:00AM on the day of the ride. RIDE LEADERS: Anthony Savarese, and Scott Baker volunteers for the East Coast Greenway Alliance.
