To our Shoreline Greenway Trail supporters and bike riders!! ……. Please join us in New Haven on Saturday, April 30th, for the annual Rock to Rock 2022 Bike Rides to celebrate Earth Day, and to help Shoreline Greenway Trail support 20 local environmental partner organizations – while respecting public health guidance. This is a great event for solo riders/hikers, families, and groups of friends of all skill levels.
Rock to Rock organizers tell us that Rock to Rock will look significantly different this year, to keep the riders and whole community safe and healthy. All of the rides start and end in East Rock Park. Register today and sign up to ride the metric century (60 miles), 40 mile, 20-mile, 12 mile, East Rock base-to-summit ride, two mile family rides, or hike around the base of East Rock. You choose your adventure! All rides will have staggered starts for small groups.
Once you register you’ll get a link to sign up for a specific ride/hike time slot.
