ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) — The City of Albany is sponsoring a two-mile “Bike to Work Day Ride” on June 1 at 8 a.m. Officials said this is to celebrate the growth of cycling in the city and to celebrate the first spring that the Albany Skyway is open.

The ride will begin at the parking lot of the USS Slater. Cyclists will ride north along the Hudson River, and over the Skyway into Wallenberg Park where a press conference will be held.
