*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.
*Support great local environmental organizations!* Rock to Rock raises funds for the following a bunch of great environmental organizations: The Urban Resources Initiative, Common Ground, Solar Youth, New Haven Parks Department, Friends of East Rock Park, Friends of Beaver Pond Park, Friends of Edgewood Park, New Haven-Leon Sister City Project, Sierra Club's Inner City Outings, and Elm City Cycling. All of these organizations share a commitment to helping New Haven residents explore and learn from the city's parks. And all of these organizations need of additional resources in order to keep their important work strong and growing.
