Ride Along With History
September 9, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Join The Walkway over the Hudson State Historic Park to celebrate the centennial of Women’s Suffrage in New York State with “Woman on a Wheel,” a history ride program. Guest historian Kjirsten Gustavson will visit the site at 10:00 A.M. in her reproduction 1890s bicycle costume to talk about the impact of the bike on women’s social status in the years before the vote. After a short discussion, visitors will be invited to jump on their own bikes to join Ms. Gustavson on a 30 minute trip on the park’s trails. Lemonade and treats will be served at the Dutchess entrance gates, top of Washington street stairs at the ride’s end. Children fourteen years and younger are required to wear a helmet. We encourage participants to bring their own vintage, classic, antique bicycles to ride along with Ms. Gustavson.
Call (845) 834-2867 to reserve your spot.
