Event Type Bike Tour Description This compact bicycle tour in downtown Albany will go back to the colonial period in the Hudson Valley as we ride to the houses and estates of three prominent Dutch families. The history, architecture and family stories of Cherry Hill, Schuyler Mansion and Ten Broeck Mansion, all built in the 18th century are fascinating and will be our focus and destinations on a low traffic Sunday morning. Exploring Albany's present, we'll ride across the newly opened Skyway, along rhe Hudson River on the Corning Preserve bike path and the South End bicycle connector, all part of Albany's emerging bicycle friendly infrastructure.
