Bike Your Park Day

Corning Riverfront Park path

Also: It's a chance to check out Corning Riverfront Park's very, very green multi-use path.

This Sunday, October 1 is "Bike Your Park Day" and Parks & Trails New York has lined up an event in Albany to do just that. Blurbage:

PTNY will lead a ride from a park, through a park, and to a park. Our ride, "Explore the Empire State Trail," will begin in Albany's Corning Riverfront Park, travel to Peebles Island State Park along the Mohawk-Hudson Bike-Hike Trail (part of the Erie Canalway and future Empire State Trails), and then return to Albany. Before riders return to Albany, a representative from the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor will lead a walking tour of the early 20th Century Matton Shipyard.

The ride is about 21 miles round trip. The ride will leave Corning Riverfront Park at 9 am and arrive at Peebles Island around 10:30 am.

There's no charge to participate, but Parks & Trails does ask that you register ahead of time.

Say Something!

We'd really like you to take part in the conversation here at All Over Albany. But we do have a few rules here. Don't worry, they're easy. The first: be kind. The second: treat everyone else with the same respect you'd like to see in return. Cool? Great, post away. Comments are moderated so it might take a little while for your comment to show up. Thanks for being patient.
