Join hundreds of one-wheeled riders for four days of free outdoor activities, including escorted group rides through Manhattan (August 29) and Brooklyn (August 30) and an exciting array of games, activities, give-aways, performances, and learn-to-ride events on Governors Island (August 31 and September 1).
