The Rockspot Bike Tour is an interactive tour that allows participants to explore select sites of environmental and historical significance along the Rockaway Peninsula. We have a select number of bikes that can be loaned for free for this tour. Bikes are available on a first come first serve basis. Advanced registration required. Special thanks to National Park Service for sponsoring this event.
This tour will depart from Firehouse 59 and head over to Jamaica Bay WIldlife Refuge where we will get a guided tour around east or west pond. This is a more advanced ride, not suggested for novice riders.
IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND THIS TOUR, PLEASE NOTIFY RWA (firstname.lastname@example.org) SO WE ARE ABLE TO ACCOMMODATE OTHER GUESTS. These tours are popular and we often have a waiting list - by notifying us in advance you will allow another guest to participate in this free tour. Thank you in advance.
GETTING TO THE ROCKAWAYS:
If you are traveling to the Rockaways, please allow yourself additional time to get here by checking the MTA schedule in advance to see if trains & shuttles are running on time. Due to the destruction of the subway line from Storm Sandy, transportation to the Rockaways can often take up to 2 hours from mid-town Manhattan. Tours will depart on-time.
