Bikes, Kites, & Ferries Oh My!

Who doesn't love the sound of a bike ride and then kite flying? Especially in the gorgeous cooler weather we are expecting this weekend.

From Friday, September 19th – Sunday, September 21st: Governors Island is hosting a Free Bike and Kite Weekend!

All weekend, visitors can borrow a bike for up to one hour entirely for free. Free Bike Weekend, like the Free Bike Fridays program on Governors Island, is sponsored by Transportation Alternatives. Bikes are limited and are available on a first come, first served basis. Also, the first 250 visitors each day will be given a kite to fly on the Island’s Parade Ground.

Governors Island always has free admission and is open from 10-5pm on Fridays and 10am-7pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
You can get there via a Free Ferry at the Battery Maritime Building! Enjoy.....
