Bicycle Sundays Roll on May 5

Westchester's Bicycle Sundays May 5Despite construction on the Bronx River Parkway, one of Westchester’s longest-running recreational programs – Bicycle Sundays – will get underway for the 2013 season on Sunday, May 5, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

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.

Bicycle Sundays 2013 are May 5, 12 and 19; June 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30; and September 8, 15, 22 and 29. Hours are 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Parking is available at the County Center lot in White Plains for a fee of $5.

Bicycle Sundays is once again 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.
