This year, Upper Green Side and Transportation Alternative’s East Side Committee have joined forces to organize a group ride from the Upper East Side to a Bike Month Launch Party on May 1.
The East Side Ride to the Bike Month Launch Party will be a leisurely-paced ride suitable for families with children and for seniors, with experienced volunteer leaders and marshals to help keep it fun and safe for all. The ride starts at the Central Park Boathouse at 11:00 am on May 1, makes a stop at 96th Street and Park Avenue at 11:30, and a final stop at Dag Hammarskjold Plaza at 12:00 before heading south to the Brooklyn Bridge.
For more ambitious folks, consider continuing on to the 1:00 p.m. celebration at New York City’s newest park, Brooklyn Bridge Park. Once there, you can get free light bike repair from Recycle-A-Bicycle, register your bike with the NYPD to help identify it if it is stolen, enroll your child in a Learn-To Ride class from Bike New York, or attend a festival of cycling-themed film shorts reviewed here by the New York Times. All free!
All of the details are included on this map.
