Bronx River Bike Tour
Norwood - 205th Street D Train Station - 280 east 206th street, Bronx, NY 10467

 
Did you know that the Bronx River is NYC's only true fresh water river? It was considered as a source for NYC's drinking water in the 1830's but was labelled "an open sewer" by the end of that century. The river has made a comeback since the days of reckless dumping and now supports many forms of aquatic life like Alewife Herring and even a beaver named "Jose."

Join NYC H2O and ride the Bronx River Greenway on this 17 miles ride that will take 3 hours. & miles of the tour will be on the Bronx River Parkway which is open to bikes for Bicycle Sundays.  For more information and to register click
