Bike/Hike Bronx River Parkway & Cranberry Lake
Visit Westchester County's car-free spaces: part of the Bronx River Parkway will be just for bikes today, and we'll also use nearby paths to make the ride 44% car free. Lunch is at the Cranberry Lake nature preserve in a quiet, forested area, where we take an (optional) short hike around the lake. All paths are paved and suitable for road bikes. Mostly rolling terrain with some steep hills. This route is super-scenic, including waterfalls, forested paths and stunning views from the Kensico Dam. Early return via Metro-North Harlem Line possible anywhere along route, ask leaders at start for details.
Meet at Woodlawn: last station on the 4 train in the Bronx. Bring appropriate walking footwear if needed for the hike, and a lightweight lock. Bring or buy lunch. Check mta.info day of ride for subway changes. Alternate subway: D train to Bedford Park Boulevard and ride 1 mile north on Jerome Ave to end of el.
