Yonkers City Council President Chuck Lesnick is promoting an event called the “Tour de Yonkers,” set to take place this weekend with a cycle from Yonkers through the Bronx and into Manhattan.
A host of elected officials plan to participate. Lesnick, council Majority Leader Patricia McDow, Council member and mayoral candidate Dennis Robertson, County Legislator Ken Jenkins, County Legislator Jose Alvarado, and Congressman Eliot Engel are all on the list, though whether all will take to the road is unclear.
The event — a tour through parks run by Yonkers, Westchester County and NYC — is in partnership with the Yonkers Bike Club. It leaves Saturday at 9 a.m. sharp from Redmond Park Field.
