See Rochester in a new way!
A nod to George Eastman’s own love of cycling, this bike tour will take you to ten different locations related to the life and work of this pioneer of popular photography and famous Rochesterian. You will see buildings and sites that shaped Eastman’s life—or were in turn shaped by him.
The George Eastman Bike Tours are led by Jesse Peers, archivist in the George Eastman Legacy Collection and League of American Bicyclists certified bike instructor. Peers will guide participants on the relaxed pace, 6.5-mile tour. At each of the ten stops, Peers will share insight into Eastman’s life and work.
Open to riders of all experience levels. Limited to 12 participants.
