Green Apple Ride

[See the calendar for a complete list of upcoming events!]

In 1992 Time’s Up! supports the creation of the first Green Apple Map, pinpointing 145 local sites in New York City that have environmental impact and sparking a local-global movement.

The non-profit Green Map System fostered the creation of locally led Green Map projects in over 400 cities in 50 countries. As of 2007, more than 325 separate Green Maps have been published, including five citywide editions of NYC’s own map. Time’s Up! co-sponsors annual Green Apple Cycling Tours that introduce the map’s highlighted areas. These fun and informative rides encourage new riders and inspire them to work toward a greener New York City.

How Green is Our City?

Green Map System’s downtown eco-tour explores the Garden District, greenways and riversides, composting, solar, and green building sites. Recently a new theme, Adapting to Change, was added to this sustainability ride to consider the impacts of Superstorm Sandy and climate change – see the map at Every tour includes special guest speakers and surprises.
