About This Tour

What does it take to build a bridge across the widest section of the magnificent Hudson River? More than two million pounds of all-American steel was used to build the Governor Mario M. Cuomo Bridge, along with enough concrete to build a sidewalk from New York to Key West, Florida. Hop on your bike and join us on a bike ride along the new shared path across the Hudson River.

Take in the views and learn about the rich history of the Hudson Valley. The path covers three-point-six miles and is the longest of its kind in the nation. Six scenic overlooks are situated along the way, each with a unique theme and design developed in concert with the community. Learn about the region's unique geology, explore the area's shipping and sailing heritage and discover the local connection to the arts. Along the pathway, there's public art to explore, spectacular views and kiosks with more information.

This tour is presented by the New York State Thruway Authority and Historic Hudson River Towns.
