Weekend Fun: Park(ing) Day Redux, Tour de Bronx

TourDeBronx_2008crop2.jpgThe weather should be ideal for two livable streets events set for this weekend. Tomorrow from noon to 6 p.m., Park(ing) Day Redux will recreate several of the "most inspired" spots from this year’s event for a block party in front of Eyebeam Art + Technology Center on 21st Street between 10th and 11th Avenue.

Sunday marks the 14th Annual Tour de Bronx, a free bike ride tailored to all ages and skill levels. Participants in the 25-mile ride will be escorted by ride marshals and police, and there is a 40-mile route for experienced cyclists. Check-in times range from 8 to 10 a.m., depending on the starting point.

The Tour de Bronx is co-sponsored by Transportation Alternatives and Bronx Borough President Adolfo Carrion. See the Streetfilm of last year’s ride here.
