Start: Hooper Fountain, Harlem.
Finish: Hooper Fountain, Harlem.
Going through: Manhattan, The Bronx, Westchester
Distance: 38.4 miles
Highlights: Nearly 14 miles of The Bronx River Parkway closed to cars, and dedicated to bikes–and this ride takes you there. The Bronx River Parkway is traditionally closed to car traffic from 10am-2pm on Sundays from the first weekend of May to the last weekend of September, save holiday weekends.

Includes: PDF file with ride intelligence and GPX file with route. The PDF prepares you for the route and can be glanced at, printed out and/or uploaded to your mobile device. The GPX is to be uploaded into your bike computer or mobile device so you can let the machine give you the directions as you ride along.
Notes: The Bronx River Parkway has been closed to cars on summer Sundays since 1974. It’s a nice way to ride through the heart of Westchester without a worry about car traffic. The ride turns around in White Plains, but if you have a yen for more, you can use this as a jumping off point to join up with several of the other Westchester rides (W01, W02, W03, W04) that we’ve mapped, or ride across the Tappan Zee Bridge and ride the west bank of the Hudson home.
