North Bronx Bikeway, A Place That Matters

north bronx bikeway

The North Bronx Bikeway, nominated by Christina Martinez.

The borough that has the most greenspace, the Bronx, also has a bike trail that connects its large, beautiful parks. The North Bronx Bikeway is a scenic bike path through the north and central Bronx extending from Van Cortlandt Park in the northwest, down past the Botanical Gardens in Bronx Park, along scenic Pelham Parkway, and ending up in Pelham Bay Park, City Island, and Orchard Beach. To ride the path, just follow the signs for the city’s Greenway System. Along the way you’ll find many of the highlights and landmarks of the north and central Bronx.

You might want to conclude your ride at Orchard Beach, or if you veer off to the right toward City Island, you can ride straight down its main artery and find a seafood dinner. Log onto the Place Matters website and click on “Place of the Week” to learn more about the places along the bikeway.
