Take a Ride and Learn About a Landfill
Cycle Schenectady will be actively participating in this ride sponsored by ECOS: The Environmental Clearinghouse.
Here is the announcement from ECOS.
We are excited to announce a series of infrastructure talks hosted by ECOS summer intern Matthew Tate.
The first talk will be Friday, June 25th, at 6 pm. Individuals will gather on the paved path at the top of the hill in Blatnick Park, River Road, Niskayuna, to learn about the capped landfill. The adjacent parking lot is at the end of Line Drive behind the baseball fields. The talk will be followed by a 6-mile bike ride.
People can show up for just the talk at 6 pm, or join in for the bike ride afterwards, which goes 3 miles to the train depot at Lions Park and back.
Please call the ECOS office at (518) 370-4125 the day of the event for a recorded message of cancellation due to foul weather.
Join Us on Juneteenth
Cycle Schenectady will be participating in the Hamilton Hill Arts Center’s annual Juneteenth celebration at Central Park this year. Along with our partner Electric City Bike Rescue, we will be offering bike repairs, giving away some children’s bikes and helmets, and conducting a fun and educational bike rodeo for kids.
Stop by and visit us at our table. Bring your kids and your bikes, join the celebration, and enjoy a day in the park.

Cycle Schenectady will be hosting a series of casual, family-friendly rides this summer in various neighborhoods. The aim is to give residents of each neighborhood a chance to ride with their immediate neighbors and see things from a different perspective — i.e., the seat of a bike on low-stress streets. Additionally, we want people from other neighborhoods to join the ride, touring and learning about neighborhoods different from their own. To facilitate that learning, the group will stop for 15 minutes or so and hear a talk about the neighborhood they’re riding through from someone knowledgeable about it.
