Woman on a Wheel

July 28 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Celebrate women’s history with this talk and ride 212 feet above the Hudson River!  Historian Kjirsten Gustavson will begin the morning with a 20 minute, illustrated talk about the impact of bicycles on Victorian women–from exercise to dress reform to social movements.  Dressed in Victorian bicycle costume, Ms. Gustavson will then lead visitors on a ride over the beautiful Walkway Over the Hudson.  From there, follow the 4.4 mile Walkway Loop Trail for a self-guided exploration of historic Highland and Poughkeepsie.

Call (845) 834-2867 to reserve your spot.

Location: West (Highland) Entrance of the Walkway Over the Hudson
