Bike Harlem and hear from six historic statues

Experience a one-of-a-kind history tour through Harlem's public art, via a leisurely bike ride.

We'll meet at a shop to rent bicycles (or bring your own) and tour through Harlem to see great sculptures of historic black figures, from Frederick Douglass to Harriet Tubman to Malcolm X to Duke Ellington. At each one, after a brief introduction, the statue will be "reanimated" with the audio playback of a key speech or writing, gradually filling out a tapestry of black history in America and in Harlem.

We'll also have an exclusive visit to the Walls-Oritz Gallery, where my photography and video art was recently exhibited. We'll take a snack break at High Bridge Park, with its panoramic view of the north end of the city, and stroll past the picturesque Harlem Meer.

I went on the “Speaking Statues of Harlem Bike Tour ” expecting a nice bike tour north of Central Park, not expecting a program that would bring an important aspect of American History to life. Somehow the combination of the statues, each with a different aspect of history, as presented by Matt Twomey (a NYTimes Editor), a small group to share our appreciation of these “Heroes of America”, and traveling from one statue to another, made the tour a personal journey. A journey with those who made sacrifices and contributed to building a better society. Matt was great, answering questions, looking out for each person’s concerns, e.g. senior citizens, adding little things, like including a little ride through Central Park, a snack, and a postcard of the trip and the statues. Thank you, Dan

We had an interesting bike tour with Matt. Learned new things about well knows persons in history and more unknown persons. Also a way to see another side of Harlem. Good fun if you are into an alternative way of experiencing NY. Matt is a kind and attentive guide!

Matt has been a great host, and offers a different and original way of discover and cycle through Harlem. The tour is really interesting and the simple fact of riding a bike with a local makes this experience really awesome. Thanks for all.

So this was wonderfully different. We got to see and feel the neighborhood and exercise at the same time. We got to see things with our wonderful guide. We also got a private tour of a local art gallery which made my day since I love ART! I would greatly suggest this tour and our guide was so nice he even brought us snacks!
