RYP Community Development: Pedal Tour
August 8, 2018 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm$10.80
Join us for a downtown happy hour pedal tour and support Rochester’s Wall/Therapy public art project! The pedal tour is BYOB (no glass bottles, please!) and tickets are just $10.80!
The Rochester Pedal Tour Historical & Sightseeing Tour showcases downtown like you’ve never seen it before. The tour will feature knowledgeable guides who will navigate us to many of Rochester’s landmarks and up and coming projects, including the Inner Loop Development and Strong Museum Expansion, Sibley Building, Rundel Library, Washington Square Park, Parcel 5, the Temple Building, Waters Edge Project (where the subway entrance used to be), and St. Jospeh’s Cathedral where we will walk around the inside of this urban sanctuary.
We will also stop for pictures at many downtown Wall/Therapy murals where we will learn about the history of the art and make sure to snap some Kodak moments/Instagram photos.
During the tour, feel free to enjoy beer, wine, and cider (BYOB, no glass bottles) as you pedal and listen to music of your group’s choosing. (Come prepared with a playlist if you wish to provide the music for your group’s bike!) We will stop for a half hour by 5th Frame, Scotland Yard and Tapas at the halfway point of the tour, so you can enjoy drinks and a snack at the place of your choosing.
Meet us at Marshall Street Bar & Grill at 5:30 to sign in and mingle so we can be ready to start the tour promptly at 6pm. We will return to Marshall Street at approximately 8:30pm.

Wall/Therapy is an art and community intervention project, using public murals as a means to transform Rochester’s urban landscape, inspire, and build community. WALL\THERAPY murals have transformed walls, buildings, and neighborhoods. This transformation has sparked inspiration in individuals and communities alike.
