Cyclists Will Take to the Streets of Hartford
The sixth annual tour will take place in conjunction with Hartford's Envisionfest, a celebration of Hartford's arts, food and culture. Hosted by BIKE WALK CONNECTICUT, the tour is a fun, family-friendly, leisurely ride that welcomes cyclists of all abilities to explore our capital city's diverse neighborhoods, architectural and cultural gems and parks by bicycle.
Riders may choose to ride a 10-, 25- or 40-mile route. Attractions across each route vary, however, some of the highlights along the way may include: Bushnell Park, the Soldier & Sailors Memorial Arch, the Wadsworth Atheneum, the Mark Twain House, the Butler-McCook House and Gardens, the Colt building, the Bushnell, Riverside Park, Keney Park, Pope Park, The Hartford Circus Fire Memorial, Trinity College, Charter Oak Landing, the Artist Collective, Goodwin Park, Cedar Hill Cemetery, Elizabeth Park and more!
We have added a new addition to the 40-mile route for 2013. This year the 40-mile option will head into East Hartford, Manchester, South Windsor, Windsor and back into Hartford, which will add even more attractions for cyclists to see during their ride.
