Bob Halstead, local resident and Bridgeport raconteur, will lead a a free bike tour to artists’ open studio spaces along the 2016 Bridgeport Art Trail, with visits to:

Historic stops along the way include the shuttered Palace & Lowes Majestic Theaters as well as a ride past the Victorian architecture surrounding Washington Park in Bridgeport’s Historic District.

There will be an afternoon stop for lunch at Pantanal Restaurant & Churrascaria and the tour will end back where it began, with crisp refreshments at City Lights Gallery.

Urban Bike Tours of Bridgeport aims to use the bicycle as a means to connect the dots of Bridgeport’s flavor, history and architecture, highlighting the local artists’ adaptive re-use and repurpose of historic buildings.

We will explore the long-vacant, exquisite & historic Palace and Majestic Theaters, discovering amazing creators of new works in old buildings, all while meandering through historic and ethnic neighborhoods on bikes.

Throughout the year, Bob has led several adventures across the city with Urban Bike Tours of Bridgeport. Stay in touch and join in the fun via Facebook: Urban Bike Tours of Bridgeport.

The bike tour is free but you will be responsible for the cost of your lunch at Pantanal Restaurant .
