Bicycle Tour of Trees in Manhattan
Horace Greeley Monument in City Hall Park


Join the Five Borough Bicycle Club on a tour of New York's most amazing trees!


With over 5.2 million of them in our town, author and tree photographer Benjamin Swett will have you meeting just a few of his Manhattan favorites. From revolutionary times to recent events, from humble saplings to old-time survivors, we'll visit trees that take on a character of their own. Before you know it, you'll want to get your arms around the trunks of these old-time New York natives and immigrants. They'll include a stop at the Arsenal Gallery in Central Park to see Benjamin's photo exhibit of images from his new book, New York City of Trees.

Please bring lock, lunch money, and, if you wish, $29.95 to get "Benjy's" gorgeously photographed and revealing book. Food will be at a local eatery with "roots" in the community. Rain at start cancels.


This event is organized by MillionTreesNYC and the Five Borough Bicycle Club. For more information, visit www.5bbc.org/rides or contact RASANFORD@aol.com.
