This ride travels along the Bronx’s more than 100 year- old Grand Concourse, a majestic boulevard modeled after Paris’s Champs Elysées, initially with separate lanes for separate forms of locomotion. Today, a bike lane lines the entire 4-mile artery, and your journey is framed by ornate Art Deco- and Art Moderne–style buildings. You’ll pass Poe Cottage, where the poet Edgar Allan Poe spent his final years, and an idiosyncratic Queen of the Universe Shrine. The route then leads through the Bronx’s Little Italy, where pastry shops, pasta makers, butchers, and pizza parlors are likely to tempt you to stop off for a taste.
