The 25-Mile Ride:
A leisurely ride that's great for every age and skill level. Enjoy Bronx Greenway bike paths, parklands, shoreline and more. Ride marshals and NYPD escorts accompany riders. It's a one-of-a-kind experience and a great way to see the Bronx.
The 40-Mile Ride:
The pace is significantly faster on this ride which covers a greater distance in the same amount of time. This ride ventures further to visit places like City Island and SUNY Maritime College. It is recommended for experienced cyclists who are comfortable riding in traffic (THERE IS NO SAFETY CELL ON THIS RIDE. Kids under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian).
