Cool off on the waterfront and see how the Big Apple is Water City on rides in our Blue Apple series. Guided by waterfront experts, all rides in this series will show you how the rivers, creeks, and bays of New York are revitalizing. Visit new parks and public places, and pockets of the city from ages past.
Check back for new ride listings. Past rides have included the:
East River’s Elbow Ride: Pedal the tri-boro waterfront with stops in Queens, the Bronx, and Manhattan. See where waterfront access exists — and where it doesn’t. Ride includes stops to talk about river/waterfront/neighborhood issues.
Missing Links Along the Waterfront Ride: Explore the variety of waterfront access treatments–especially the missing links–that occur throughout New York City and New Jersey. Ride up the west side of Manhattan to the George Washington Bridge, bike down the New Jersey side to Bayonne, over the Bayonne Bridge, up the North Shore of Staten Island, and take the Staten Island Ferry back to Manhattan, with a few stops along the way to discuss points of interest.
Blue Apple Hudson River Bike Cruise: A relaxing bike ride up the Hudson to Piermontand a cruise on the Fireboat John J. Harvey back to Manhattan! This ride series is cosponored by the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance.
