Bicycle Sundays Get Back on Track this Fall

Bicycle Sundays on Bronx River Parkway Fall 2013Bicycle Sundays on the Bronx River Parkway will resume this fall for four consecutive Sundays, on September 8, 15, 22 and 29. During Bicycle Sundays, a portion of the Bronx River Parkway is closed to cars for the exclusive use of bicyclists, joggers, walkers, scooters and strollers.

The course runs from the Westchester County Center in White Plains, south to Scarsdale Road in Yonkers, a round-trip of 13.1 miles. There are many points of entry and exit along the way.

This year, due to the construction project on the parkway, only one lane of the parkway will be open in both directions in the vicinity of the Crane Road Bridge in Greenburgh/Scarsdale. However, this area will remain available for Bicycle Sundays’ participants throughout the season.

Parking is available at the County Center lot in White Plains for a fee of $5.

Bicycle Sundays on Bronx River Parkway Fall 2013Bicycle Sundays is sponsored by Con Edison and Friends of Westchester County Parks, and is presented by Westchester County Parks, with additional support provided by 100.7 WHUD radio.

In case of rain, the program is cancelled. Call the County Center for information at (914) 995-4050 or go to countycenter.biz.
