Several days a week, Union Square, at the starting point of your journey, hosts one of the city’s largest farmers’ markets, where regional farmers peddle produce much like earlier settlers did via pushcart on the streets of the Lower East Side in the nineteenth century. Some of these early pushcart enterprises grew into thriving businesses that continue to serve the community today. This ride tours through the vibrant neighborhoods of the East Village, the Lower East Side, Chinatown, and Little Italy, passing several such longstanding establishments—cafes, eateries, bars, and merchants— along the way. It’s a great ride for anyone interested in the city’s early ethnic enclaves, a taste for Old World specialty foods, and some urban cycling savvy.
