Ride to New Bike Lanes in Downtown Hartford, Sat Oct 28

Register online to join our group ride and check out new high-visibility bike lanes in downtown Hartford on Saturday October 28th, 2023.

Bring ideas and examples from Hartford to West Hartford. If #HartfordHasIt then #WhyNotWeHa?

Co-led by Jennifer Boyd, Emmy-winning filmmaker of The Street Project documentary. At key points we’ll stop and chat about ways to design safer infrastructure for walkers-cyclists-transit users.

Our group bike ride is designed to be fun and open to all skill levels, rolling at a friendly pace of 10-12 mph, with no one left behind.

9am start at Elizabeth Park near greenhouses on the West Hartford side

11am end with optional coffee at Tisane Euro-Asian Cafe, 537 Farmington Avenue

Bring any bicycle in good condition, a water bottle, and money if you wish to buy a drink or snack at the cafe.

Our 7-mile loop follows roads — some with bike lanes, and some without — thru the Asylum Hill neighborhood, Union Station and Church Street, Constitution Plaza, Bushnell Park, Capitol Ave, and back to the West End.
