The 2017 Rock to Rock Bike Ride

This year’s Rock to Rock, New Haven’s largest Earth Day celebration, will be held on Saturday, April 22nd. Participants will ride their bikes across the city, raising funds for environmental causes, getting exercise and having fun!

From West Rock to East Rock, the 8-mile, 12-mile, 20-mile, 40-mile, and metric century routes explore New Haven’s parks and greenspaces, back roads and city streets, city neighborhoods and small towns. Along the way, riders can listen to great music, eat tasty food, and enjoy a beautiful spring day.
