One of the best ways to see Hartford is by bicycle, a pleasure that will be afforded to about 1,000 hardy souls on Sept. 21. That's the day of the sixth annual Discover Hartford Bicycle Tour, which features 10-, 25- or 40-mile bike rides through the city's parks and neighborhoods and, for those on the 40-mile loop, parks and paths east of the Connecticut River.
The upbeat event has become increasingly popular, as has bicycling in general in the capital region. The tour is sponsored by Bike Walk Connecticut; register at bikewalkct.org.
The ride anchors what is shaping up to be a remarkable weekend in downtown Hartford. The tour is part of the city's Envisionfest celebration, a free one-day festival featuring music, art, games, exhibits and more. It's intended to show how downtown can transform around the iQuilt plan for connecting arts and cultural assets around the fulcrum of Bushnell Park. > Read more
