Friday, November 27th, 7 p.m.

3. RIVERSIDE RIDE
Saturday, November 28th, 10 p.m.
Columbus Circle (SW corner of Central Park, at the intersection of Broadway, Central Park South 59th Street, and Central Park West)

Come join bicyclists and skaters (and the occasional unicyclist) for a leisurely ride through Central and Riverside Parks. Weather? Our record suggests we only call off these rides when no one in their right mind would have fun. Appropriate for experienced skaters, and bicyclists of just about any skill level. We hope these rides encourage more folks to enjoy the parks at night, without motor vehicles, in a quiet, safe, relaxed setting. The ride is about 12 miles long, and we return to Columbus Circle around midnight.
