Following the ride, join the after-party at the beach with food from the Rockaway food vendors and a swim in the ocean! Participants can make their own way back independently via the A train or by bicycle.

Alternate starts are available at Owls Head Park (26-mile ride) and Floyd Bennett Field (14-mile ride).
