Good news for train travelers who’d rather not lug their bikes on board. Now through August 31, 2015, Metro-North is offering a bike package to those interested in a two-wheeled day trip in the Hudson Valley. Ride the rails to Beacon, just 80 minutes north of Manhattan, pick up your cruiser at Peoples Bikes, then enjoy a two hour tour of the charming town and hot spots like the Riverfront Trail, Beacon Creamery, Homespun Foods, and Dia: Beacon.
Visit web.mta.info for more information and to book your ticket ($46.50/RT).
