Preferred Care is putting on what they call Nature Nights every Tuesday at 6pm from May 26th through August 25th. These nights include biking, (canoe) paddling, hiking and walking in the different areas Rochester has to offer.
Tuesday Rachel and I, along with my mother and several other of their coworkers, participated in a 10 (ish) mile bike ride along the Genesee River. We started at the Seneca Park Zoo parking lot. From there we crossed a walking/riding bridge to the other side of the Genesee. We rode along Lake ave for a short distance and then through Turning Point Park. From there we rode on to Ontario Beach Park. We took a short break at abbots and then headed back along the same route. Some people got a longer break than others, due to a lost rider… but that’s a story for another day.
I intended to record video of the whole thing. However; the battery in my camera died after crossing the bridge so this is all I got:
The pace was very leisurely (a bit slow for my taste) but it was a great ride with a great group. Everyone was very friendly and we’ll probably participate again.
Enjoy some of the scenery the Genesee Riverway Trail has to offer below. Please note, these were shot with my iPhone so the quality is a little… well the quality is little.
