In partnership with the town’s Experience the Sound Festival, the second annual History on Wheels family bike tour will take place on Sunday, June 23, 2013, at Greenwich Point. As you pedal around the point, you’ll find out how this idyllic 19th century island estate built by millionaire J. Kennedy Tod on the original 1640 Greenwich founder's Elizabeth Neck, evolved into a beloved recreational facility. Engage with local historians and naturalists stationed throughout the park to learn about Tod’s original beachfront golf course, about the historic "Chimes" and other remaining buildings, how the Eagle statue came to stand guard over the estate's pond and much more. You’ll stop along the way to hear stories and see vintage photos taken from the Historical Society Archives that capture snapshots of different eras. The tour is open to bike-riding singles, families and children over seven years old who are able to ride a bike. Kids will enjoy their very own scavenger hunt as part of the tour.
Experience the Sound is co-sponsored by the Greenwich Shellfish Commission and To The Point, whose aim is to expand the community’s awareness of coastal marine life, nature, outdoor recreational pursuits and the environment by showcasing local organizations and education institutions that care for and promote them.
