Looking for a great way to see Syracuse and to get fit? Join us on Sunday, May 17th at 9:00 am at the Creekwalk Trail Head (Jefferson Street in Armory Square) to launch the 2015 Cycle in the City’s free guided bike rides. Creating Healthy Places to Live, Work, and Play in Onondaga County Program, the City of Syracuse, and several community partners will be offering both 10 and 20 mile guided bicycle rides once a month from May to October 2015.
Upcoming dates for the Sunday bicycle rides are: June 21, July 19, August 16, September 13, and October 4. All rides will begin at 9:00 am from the Creekwalk Trail Head (Jefferson Street in Armory Square) with a different city bicycle route each month. Riders must be 12 years of age or older to participate and helmets are required for every rider. Rides are free and pre-registration is NOT required!
Riding a bicycle is good for your health! People who ride bicycles regularly for either transportation or recreation may have reduced rates of disease and increased cardiovascular fitness. Biking is also an activity that is environmentally friendly, utilizes no fuel, and creates no air or noise pollution.
Come join the fun and get fit too! For more information, or to view the bicycle routes that will be offered, contact the Creating Healthy Places to Live, Work, and Play in Onondaga County Program at 435-3280 or visit www.ongov.net/healthyplaces.html.
