Now that the bike and pedestrian path at the Gov. Mario M. Cuomo Bridge is open, it’s time to gear up and peddle on a Road Trip Close to Home.
The path opened in June and connects Westchester and Rockland counties.

You can walk across the span, bring your own bike, or rent an electric one at the sleek E-bike tent. Then, between 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. coast alongside more than 3.5 miles of unique panoramic views of the Hudson.  “I’m a big walker but to go across the bridge was really dynamic and really fascinating,” says Paula Marglin, of Ossining.
The path features six scenic overlooks, and along your journey be sure to stop off at the touch screen kiosks. They offer a quick history lesson of the bridge and the Hudson River flowing beneath your feet.
Refuel at neighborhood vendors like Double Barrel New York with anything from a fresh cup of locally roasted coffee to snacks made close to home. 
After about a 20-minute bike ride or an 80-minute walk, you’ll arrive at the other end of the bridge and you’ll be greeted by a fascinating mural. “It really turned out to be quite spectacular,” says Barbara Plotnik, of Tarrytown.
Since the Hudson Valley is still in the middle of a pandemic, you have to remember to wear a face mask and keep your social distance as much as you can.
Twitter is where any updates or notifications for the bridge are posted, and the bridge authorities tell News 12 this is where they mainly communicate updates to visitors.
