Join us for a bike tour through two of Buffalo’s most picturesque neighborhoods.  We’ll pass by the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed Darwin Martin House as we bike the Olmsted-planned curving streets of the Parkside neighborhood.  Crossing over the Belt Line Railroad, we will also explore the prestigious Central Park Neighborhood, including Depew and Morris Avenues, where we will see the former homes of famous Buffalo families, such as the Kittingers and Oisheis. Returning to Olmsted’s Delaware Park, we will rediscover the park’s former quarry.

Meet outside the Parkside Lodge in Delaware Park at 84 Parkside Avenue, Buffalo, NY 14214.
