    Thank you, Mr. Sideburn! The county hasn't posted any fall dates. I wonder if this means there won't be any, or whether they haven't got around to it yet.

    How long is the parkway? Can it be ridden in both directions as a loop ride?
    I'm just trying to be the person my dog thinks I am.

    The closed section is about 7 miles and it closed on both directions so you can do a loop.

    >>>...closed on both directions so you can do a loop.<<<<<

    ...but I would recommend taking the parallel Bronx River Bikeway in at least one direction!

    Hmm - you're right - there are no fall dates. In the past, weren't Bike Sundays in May, June and Sept?

    Thanks for the heads-up, Michael. The heading of this thread is a little confusing, as it lists the dates for 2013, rather than this year. Perhaps you might want to start a new thread with the 2014 dates in the heading.
