Biking the Waterfront

July 15 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

Resilience, Access, and Opportunities offer participants a unique view of the waterfronts of East Harlem, Randall’s Island, and the South Bronx. This event includes a bike tour and a lunch, and participants are welcome to attend one or both. Starting at 10 am and meeting at 114th and 1st Ave at the corner of Thomas Jefferson Park, join us for a two-hour tour highlighting the challenges, changes, and opportunities for creating more equitable public access and resiliency opportunities along our waterfronts. The tour will be led by bike advocates, waterfront experts, and community leaders sharing their knowledge and ways for you to get more involved in shaping the future of our shorelines.

At 12 pm, our second round of festivities will take place at Maria Sola Green Space for a wonderful lunch and activities for all ages to learn and engage with shaping our waterfront.

This event is partly funded through support from the Hudson River Foundation, New York-New Jersey Harbor and Estuary Program, and Waterfront Alliance.

No bike? No worry. Let us know in advance and we can provide up to 30 bikes thanks to support from Citi Bike and El Barrio bikes. 

Registration recommended here.

Location: Thomas Jefferson Park (At the corner of 114 St and 1 Av)
