Come join us on a slow community ride through the streets and bike paths of Newark, over the South College Avenue Bridge and through the University’s treasured  Farm  (one of the last remaining urban farms on a University campus!) and loop around to the UDairy Creamery for a refreshing treat.  While eating your ice cream you can meander over to the UD Botanic Gardens to enjoy the native plantings and the wildlife that they attract,  before heading back to the Newark Shopping Center. We will navigate our way back over the South College Avenue Bridge and along a leg of both the James Hall and Pomeroy Trails.
