Bicycle Sundays on the Bronx River Parkway, one of Westchester’s longest-running and most popular recreational programs, are back on track. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. most Sundays through October, the parkway will be open exclusively for bicyclists, in-line skaters, scooters, walkers and joggers from Exit 22 at the Westchester County Center to Exit 4 at Scarsdale Road in Yonkers.
   
That stretch of the parkway—a 13-mile round trip—will be closed to unauthorized motor vehicles on the following dates: June 6, 13, 20 and 27; July 11, 18 and 25; August 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29; September 12, 19 and 26; and October 3, 17, 24 and 31. Admission is free. Parking at the County Center lot in White Plains costs $8.
   
Masks are recommended for all participants and required in situations where social distancing may not always be able to be maintained. Helmets are required for children under 14 (including those in bike trailers) and recommended for all wheeled participants. Children under age 10 must be accompanied by an adult. Children in strollers must be strapped in. Skateboards, dogs and headsets are not allowed. The event will be canceled in case of rain.
Bicycle Sundays is a Westchester County Parks program sponsored by Con Edison, NewYork-Presbyterian, the Westchester Parks Foundation and Danny’s Cycles, with support from WHUD.
