From our friends with the Albany Bicycling Coalition:
The South End Bikeway Link Coalition wants to build interest and support for protected bicycle lanes as key part of the proposed 1.5-mile South End Bikeway Link. The Albany Bicycle Coalition is joining with other cycling organizations to sponsor monthly rides of the proposed route with stops at points of interest along the route.
Riders are invited to meet at Albany Corning Preserve Boat Launch Area (near Colonie St.) on March 7 at 10:00 AM) for a guided tour of the proposed route. The South End Bikeway Link will connect the new Albany County Helderberg-Hudson Rail Trail to the Albany Corning Preserve, the Mohawk-Hudson Bike-Hike Trail, and the Erie Canalway Trail and the proposed Livingston Avenue Bridge Walkway.
There will be a free “Ride Smart” mini class at 9:30 AM led by League Cycling Instructors certified by the League of American Bicyclists.
