Woman on a Wheel

Saturday, September 23, 2017 10:00 AM

Join Old Croton Aqueduct Park to celebrate the centennial of Women's Suffrage in New York State with "Woman on a Wheel," a history ride program. Guest historian Kjirsten Gustavson will visit the site at 10:00 A.M. in her reproduction 1890s bicycle costume to talk about the impact of the bicycle on women's social status in the years before the vote. After a short discussion, visitors will be invited to jump on their own bikes to join Ms. Gustavson on a 40 minute trip north on the Aqueduct trail, stopping at several neighboring historic properties, including two of prominent women. Lemonade and treats will be served at in the Keeper's House in the ride's end. Email steven.oakes@parks.ny.gov to reserve your spot. The event is free, with donations accepted. Children fourteen years and younger are required to wear a helmet.
