Volunteers from Bike Walk Connecticut are offering a fresh way to see the city on Sunday: the "Discover New Britain" bike tour.
Novice riders, veteran cyclists and all those in between can participate in the ride. Each participant can choose to do a 10-, 25- or 50-mile route.
The trips will highlight the city's parks and many of its neighborhoods. The routes will incorporate bike trails as well as city streets.
Depending on their route, riders may be on the CTfastrak, Hanover Pond, Quinnipiac River Gorge and Farmington Canal bikeways. Some groups will visit Batterson Park, Willow Brook Park and the Shuttle Meadow, Wassel, Kenmere and Hallmare reservoirs; others will see Hubbard Park, Merimere Reservoir, Hanover Pond and the Quinnipiac Gorge.
