Bicycle Sundays Have Started!

By Josefa Paganuzzi, Thompson and Bender for the Westchester Parks Foundation

May 4, 2022: Westchester Parks Foundation and Westchester County Parks have announced details for the 48th Annual Bicycle Sundays season for 2022.

During Bicycle Sundays, bicyclists, skaters, joggers and walkers take over 6.5 miles of the Bronx River Parkway. The program kicked off on May 1 and continues every Sunday in May, June, and September except Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends. The program is presented by Westchester County Parks and sponsored by the Westchester Parks Foundation and its partners, through generous donations from co-presenting sponsors NewYork-Presbyterian Lawrence Hospital and Con Edison.  

To help kick off the series, Westchester Parks Foundation and Westchester County Parks Department is promoting Bicycle Safety Month this May with tips to help promote a safe ride along the 6.5 miles of the Bronx River Parkway.  

Westchester County Executive George Latimer said, “Year after year, the community comes out in droves to participate in Bicycle Sundays. It’s such a wonderful program that allows friends and families to practice healthy traditions together while soaking in the scenery of the Bronx River Reservation.” 

Residents and visitors can enjoy Bicycle Sundays this year on the following dates between

10 a.m. and 2 p.m.:

  • May 8,15, 22
  • June 5,12, 19, 26
  • September 11, 18, 25
  • October 2

Bicycle Sundays are a beloved Westchester tradition since 1974. Since 2012, this program has been funded by Westchester Parks Foundation and its partners. Each year, more than 60,000 cyclists, joggers, and others come out to enjoy the curves and wooded scenery that make the nation’s first parkway a national historic landmark. The path winds alongside the wooded Bronx River Reservation.

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
