Friday, June 19th…Although it might raining.
there is the bike ride with First Lady of New York State, Michelle Paterson.
“In celebration of the 400th Anniversary of the Dutch Discovery of the Hudson River we invite you to join First Lady Michelle Paterson on a bike ride from Battery Park to Harlem. The ride will highlight the 400th anniversary of the Dutch discovery of the Hudson River, and will begin with a brief explanation of the Dutch influence on NYC by a local historian. What better way to commemorate the 400th Anniversary of the discovery then to ride the West Side Greenway beside it.”
Start: 3:00pm Friday, June 19, at the North Cove Marina in Battery Park, behind the World Financial Center
There will be a very brief talk from a historian, who will speak about the 400th anniversary of the Hudson, and the Dutch influence on NYC (including how Harlem got its name). We will then bike to 125th street, up the West Side Greenway bike path. (Approx. Ride time: 1 Hour)
Also Sunday, June 21st (Father’s Day) is the 36th Annual David Walker memorial Skyscaper Harlem Cycling Classic.
Come watch as Harlem is transformed into a real pro-cycling event.
