Program will celebrate both
A program celebrating the bicycle’s role in women’s suffrage will take place at the Walkway Over the Hudson in Poughkeepsie at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 9. Historian Kjirsten Gustavson will appear in period costume on a vintage bicycle to explain the bike’s impact on women’s social status in New York state during the years before they were given the vote.
A 30-minute ride on the park trails will follow, and lemonade and treats will be served at the Poughkeepsie entrance. Call 845-834-2867 to reserve a spot.
