Explore the Empire State Trail and join Parks & Trails New York for Bike Your Park Day on October 1! PTNY will host a 21-mile roundtrip ride as part of Adventure Cycling Association’s Bike Your Park Day to celebrate National Public Lands Day.

National Public Lands Day is an annual event that celebrates the stewardship and preservation that are responsible for the creation and maintenance of our beloved public parks and trails.

Bike-your-park-day-2016-black-bridge.jpgPTNY will lead a ride from a park, through a park, and to a park. Our ride, “Explore the Empire State Trail,” will begin in Albany’s Corning Riverfront Park, travel to Peebles Island State Park along the Mohawk-Hudson Bike-Hike Trail (part of the Erie Canalway and future Empire State Trails), and then return to Albany. Before riders return to Albany, a representative from the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor will lead a walking tour of the early 20th Century Matton Shipyard.

The ride is free to join, but requires registration.

We look forward to riding with you!
