Tour de Bronx passing through Starlight Park

Over 6,000 cyclists joined the 20th Annual Tour de Bronx and rode the Bronx River Greenway!

On Sunday October 26, 2014, cyclists gathered at the Grand Concourse and 161st St, where they began their cruise across the Bronx, including the Bronx River Greenway.

Along the Bronx River Greenway the excited cyclists entered Starlight Park, at E. 177th St and Devoe Ave. Then they headed south to Concrete Plant Park, where some cyclists even stopped at the park to take a picture with the iconic Concrete Plant Silos. After that, riders entered Soundview Park and rode along the greenway where people enjoyed the waterfront views at the mouth of the Bronx River past newly-restored salt marsh.

 

The largest free cycling event in the state concluded at the New York Botanical Gardens.

Thank you to the Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr., Transportation Alternatives, and the Bronx Tourism Council for hosting the event, and highlighting the Bronx River Greenway!
