Bike Tour: 101 Randall's Island Connector: Community, Industry, and Design
10:00 am

Bike New York in collaboration with Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects’ Principal Molly Bourne, will lead a discussion about the Randall's Island Connector, a gateway between the Bronx and City resources. We will learn about the Connector's development as a bridging of communities, while exploring the East River Greenways by bicycle. The primary focus for the development of this pathway, which completed at the end of 2015, and much of our more recent Greenway infrastructure, was to increase accessibility for residents and visitors alike. Expect to spend time on and off your cycle, mostly on level ground and easy-to-navigate pathways. There will be a climb over the Ward's Island Bridge to get on and off Randall's Island.Sunday
