Bike Your Park Day 2022 adventures and photos

Oct 6th, 2022

Thank you to the hundreds of cyclists who celebrated Bike Your Park Day!

Here are just a few of the fun stories and photos you all shared with us.

Life members Robert and Mary Jane Watson: "We had an amazing Bike Your Park Day in Yellowstone National Park."

Cheryle Jones-Johnson: "Led a great group of 5 other women on an 18.5- mile ride on the Fish Lake Trail, a park in Spokane, WA.  Then we had lunch at the Elk Restaurant nearby, including a little birthday party for a participant. Lots of fun!"

Bob Cameron – "We biked for ice cream from Rainbow Falls State Park on the Wallapa Rails to Trails."

Jaime Miranda – Texas Pharr Ride

Steve Pierce – "Here is the only photo of me riding my 4th of 5 sections of Skyline Drive (Shenandoah National Park). I stopped by the 75 mile marker because it was my age. ?? Next September will complete the goal of riding Skyline Drive both ways (200 mi), but in 10 days…Thanks for spurring me on. I may finally get company next year."

Dave Connelly – " Nine of us local cyclists enjoyed exploring parts of Jordan Lake State Recreation Area.  The dam that created Jordan Lake is federally owned and managed. Most of the resulting lake is part of the NC State Parks system."

Ed Brennan, president of the Albany Bicycle Coalition – "The Albany Bicycle Coalition and the Museum of Capital Corruption held a very successful Capital Corruption Bike Tour on Sept. 24th.  We had 18 riders.  A portion of our ride went through Albany’s Corning Preserve along a section of the Empire State Trail.  We also visited East Capital Park and Empire State Plaza which also serves as an outdoor modern art park.  At the end of the ride we were joined by Leon Van Dyke of the 60’s Albany activist group The Brothers for a insightful and delightful discussion of their anti-corruption efforts."
