What you'll learn in this bike class:

In response to epidemics and fires, the Old Croton Aqueduct, completed in 1842, began delivering water to New York City from the Croton River more than 40 miles north. It was an incredible feat of engineering that supplied the city with 40 million gallons of clean drinking water daily for more than 100 years. 

Inspired by our upcoming exhibition To Quench the Thirst of New Yorkers: The Croton Aqueduct at 175 (opens September 2), join Matt Malina, Director of NYC H20, for a bike tour of the vestiges of the Old Croton Aqueduct. Stops will include the foundation of the main branch of the New York Public Library, built on original stones from the Distributing Reservoir, and High Bridge, the city's oldest bridge, which opened as part of the aqueduct in 1848.  

Please note, attendees must provide their own bike and helmet and will need to sign a waiver before the tour begins in order to participate. 

The rain date for this event will be Saturday, November 4 at 12:00 pm.
