NYC H2O:Bronx River Bike Tour

Bronx River Bike Tour
Sunday, June 12, 2011
Soundview Park

Did you know that the Bronx River Is NYC’s only true fresh water river?  It was considered a source for NYC’s drinking water in the early 1830’s. By the end of the 1800’s it was labeled “an open sewer.”  The river has made a comeback since the days of reckless dumping and now supports many forms of aquatic life like Alewife Herring and even a beaver named “Jose.”

Come be awed by its beauty and bike with NYC H2O and
 the Bronx River Alliance as we tour the Bronx River from its
mouth on the Long Island Sound to its source in Valhalla.
