Rock to Rock riders raise support for more than 20 local groups — all doing high-impact work to create a healthier, greener community.
Rock to Rock begins at Common Ground (358 Springside Avenue -directions), at the base of West Rock Park, and finishes at College Woods at East Rock Park. Along the way, we stop at Beaver Pond Park and Edgewood Park
We plotted our 8-mile route with riders of all ages and abilities in mind. It’s flat, safe, and fun — and makes use of many of our city’s best cycling resources. This route has two stops in two new locations this year.
The route has just one stop at Bayview Park, next to the Long Wharf Nature Preserve. (The section along the Long Wharf Preserve is gravel/dirt and single track. Some may choose to walk their bikes through this short section.) This entire ride is flat and fun — and explores new bike infrastructure in the city!
Ride from West Rock, to Sleeping Giant, down to Lighthouse Point, and back to East Rock. The same as the 20-mile route, so you can always take a right turn at mile 17.8 and shorten the ride in half.
This ride is for serious cyclists only. You must be an adult with a road bike– No mountain bikes allowed on this ride. Support for this ride ends at 2pm.
