Time Out says

Spend some time in the sun learning a new sport (or trying a gratis session of your favorite) with Outdoor Rise, a free weeklong program sponsored by adventure-travel company Discover Outdoors. Start the day with yoga (daily 8–9:15am) in Central Park’s Sheep Meadow, or splash around while kayaking (June 17, 19, 21 noon–1pm) or trying a stand-up paddleboarding session (June 17, 19, 21 1:30–2:30pm) with the Manhattan Kayaking Company at Pier 66. A bouldering class will be offered at Rat Rock in Central Park (enter at Columbus Circle; June 18 6–7:30pm) and at Pier 46, you can try your hand at fishing (June 18, 20 6–8pm). If you prefer straight-up, no-nonsense locomotion, sign up for the bike ride that follows the Manhattan waterfront and starts at Pier 84’s Bike and Roll (June 23 10:30am–5:30pm), or meet at Grand Central Terminal to take the Metro-North to Breakneck Ridge (round-trip $26), where you’ll hike five miles, scrambling to make it to the summit to watch the sunset (June 21 4–10pm). There’s also a range of talks to spark your wanderlust; visit for details and to book your place in each activity.
