Where To Bike Next? Bicycle Sundays Are Back For Cyclists To Ride Car Free
The popular Bicycle Sundays funded by Westchester Parks Foundation has returned for bicyclists, skaters, runners and joggers to take over several miles of the Bronx River Parkway. The annual event takes place at the beginning of May and continues all Sundays in May, June and September, with the exception of Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends. The Westchester tradition that began in 1974 continues to attract over 60,000 participants each year to ride, run, or walk and enjoy the curves and wooded scenery that make the nation’s first parkway a national historic landmark. The Bicycle Sundays car free experience involves a 13.1- mile loop of the Bronx River Parkway that stretches from White Plains to Yonkers. Thankfully over the years, community leaders recognized the value of the environmental presentation and the promotion of a healthy lifestyle.
But don’t end your bike excursion with just riding the Bronx River Parkway- Westchester is filled with many places to enjoy the outdoors. Make sure to ride the Bronx River Pathway, a paved trail that highlights a picturesque backdrop located adjacent to the Bronx River Parkway. The trek spans central Westchester totaling nine miles from Valhalla to Yonkers. You can also spend an afternoon off the trail roaming through the zoo once it reopens or the famous botanical garden. We took a detour and visited a few breweries that offered curbside service.
