Event Wrap Up + Thank You’s
Since that first “Mural to Mural” ride in 2015, cycling at O+ has expanded and become more and more integral to what we do and who we are as a community.
Kingston is a hub for multiple trails for riding and at the gateway to the Catskill Mountains. Over the years we have partnered with Keegan Ales, the Mid Hudson Bike Club, the YMCA, Revolution Bikes, Kingston Women’s Bike Fest, Athletic Brewing and WMC, to name a few, as we have explored the shared belief that cycling is another way to bring people together through wellness. It is not just a great way to see murals or discover a sweeping vista. Cycling is a vehicle for mental health, physical health, and the health of our natural environment. It gives us the freedom to fly, day dream, laugh, reconnect with our bodies, and, of course, sweat.
Throughout the year, O+ offers mural rides and partners with local cycling groups and organizations to support their rides and riders. On O+ Festival weekend every October, we offer rides on a variety of surfaces and distances, for every skill level, to challenge, explore, and celebrate on two (or sometimes three) wheels. A 65 mile climb and roll through the Catskills? A 45 mile trek through the dirt? A parade through town on a tandem bicycle? A family-friendly ride to see a selection of the 50 O+ murals in Kingston? Check our calendar and events throughout the year, grab your helmet and ExplO+re wellness and art on a bicycle with O+.
