Note: This is what you are missing:

Join us at 10 a.m. on Sunday, Labor Day Weekend.  We start at Beardsley Zoo in Bridgeport, ride to Trumbull, and then cycle the Pequonnock Rail-to-Trail system to Wolf Park. Please park in the Beardsley Zoo parking lot.

The Pequonnock River Trail is a regional trail which pieced together existing paths that had developed separately on the former Housatonic Railroad line—one of New England’s first—from urban Bridgeport to rural Monroe, with additional segments opening since then. Indeed, the names you will see along the route or in other sources—such as Housatonic Railway Rails to Trails or Monroe Housatonic Railbed Trail—reflect this railroad heritage.
