Albany Bicycle Coalition will be sponsoring its first Capital Corruption Bike Tour. The ride is co-sponsored by The Museum of Political Corruption (https://museumofpoliticalcorruption.org/). The leisurely 8 to 9 mile ride will take about 2 to 2.5 hours with discussion stops at sites relating to political corruption and anti corruption efforts in Albany during the 1960’s and 1970’s. The Olde English Pub is located at the end of the ride for anyone interested in joining for refreshments. The ride includes downtown city streets that are generally quiet on Saturday mornings. Most of the ride is flat, but there are some ascents between Albany’s waterfront and Empire State Plaza. We have selected a route that staggers the climb and offers a stop along the way.
•  Participants must bring a properly working bicycle, a bike helmet and should feel comfortable riding on a city street.
•  Minimum age 12; riders under age 18 must be accompanied by adult.
•  Suggested donation to Albany Bicycle Coalition $10.
Please RSVP to albanybicyclecoalition@yahoo.com with the number of riders that will be joining us.
