Explore New Haven by bicycle. Rock to Rock is a day-long celebration of Earth Day, and of New Haven's rich environmental and cultural resources.
Here's how it works: You and a few hundred others will travel between West Rock and East Rock, with celebrations on both sides of the city. Along the way, you will eat tasty food, hear great music, take on environmental service projects, explore Edgewood and Beaver Ponds Parks, and ride Farmington Canal Trail and official city bike lanes
Think you're hard-core? Take detours to the top of the two rocks. Have a little kid in tow? Join us from Common Ground to Edgewood Park.
Families and college students, 20-something hipsters and teenagers, young and old, serious riders and weekend warriors will all be welcomed. Join our rock band.
