Upcoming | South Bronx Bike Tour

When | April 20th, 12:00 pm
Where | Meet at Brook Park, E. 141st St & Brook Ave
(ride returns to the park)

Now in its 17th successful year, this innovative event is an example of a
sustained partnership between local and city-wide organizations, including Friends of Brook Park and South Bronx Unite. Again this year, we will visit the site they had proposed to put Fresh Direct to show the vast possibilities for this space from which the community would benefit.. We will also show where the South Bronx Greenway Randall’s Island Connector IS STILL NOT COMPLETED and provide actions to make this several year long promise a reality.

This is a leisurely tour that includes beautiful natural wonders of the waterfront, community gardens and art, and historic places. See the fresh cherry blossoms!
On this trip, participants of all ages are made aware through actual site
visits of polluting fossil fuel power plants and gargantuan waste
transfer facilities that litter our rivers’ shores. Alternatives to the
existing government policies are brought to everyone’s attention, with
post-ride action steps including promoting demonstrations, letter
writing, and email campaigns.

 

Time’s Up! provided critical outreach and promotion for this ride and early support has led to significant growth in attendance as well as continued support and involvement with the important efforts of Friends of Brook Park by ride participants. FoBP offers a video for further information about local organizing campaigns against pollution and unjust land-use siting issues.
