Our last event ride of 2016 was to plant daffodil bulbs that will bloom in Spring 2017.
This past Sunday, we rode from our Central Park trailer to Corlear’s Hook Park on the Lower East Side to work with the Friends of Corlear’s Hook Park. We dug some trenches, got good and dirty, planted a whole bunch of daffodil bulbs, had some lunch with new friends and rode back to the Park.
We will ride back in the spring to see how we did. Special thanks to stokers Jay Kronfeld and Shelley Wine for helping arrange the event with Michael Marino from the Friends of Corlear’s Hook Park. Thanks as always to Jonathon Epstein for leading the ride, to captains Jose Nieves and Matt Hasday, and to Susan Elefant for the photos and just about everything else.
Thanks to InTandem stokers Jay Kronfeld and Shelley Wine, both serious gardeners, we are doing the “2016 Daffodil Ride.” This is a trailer-to-trailer ride. We will leave Central Park at 10am on Saturday, Oct. 27, pedal downtown to Corlears Hook Park on the Lower East Side to meet our friends from the Friends of Corlears Hook Park for their “It’s My Park Day.” We will be planting daffodil bulbs in three prominent meadows in the park for a couple of hours. Lunch will be served. Tandem teams can depart at or stay a bit later and get your hands more dirty. Dress appropriately, whatever that would be for bike riding and bulb planting.
During Bicycle Sundays, a portion of the Bronx River Parkway is closed to cars for the exclusive use of bicyclists, joggers, walkers, scooters and strollers. Join us for a leisurely Sunday ride along the beautiful Bronx River.
We are sold out for stokers. We still need more captains.
