Join a park ranger for a bike ride on the North Boundary Greenway to see how the former communities of the area have changed over the past 70 years. The Manhattan Project National Historical Park will present a free program on Saturday, June 17, at 10 a.m.
The program will begin at the Turnpike Gatehouse and travel down Quarry Trail, a press release said.
“Along the ride, we will explore the former communities that were here before the Manhattan Project,” the press release said. “Rangers will stop several times along the bike ride to point out the rich history that is found within the Oak Ridge area.”
The Turnpike Gatehouse is located at 2900 Oak Ridge Turnpike.
Tennessee state law requires that bicycle operators under 16 years of age must wear a helmet and child passengers under 40 pounds or 40 inches must be seated and secured in a child restraining seat or bicycle trailer. For your safety, visitors are encouraged to bring water, sunscreen, insect repellent, and appropriate footwear, the press release said.
