Join us for a 5-Island Ride ride on the EAST COAST GREENWAY
START: East River Greenway entrance @ 60th St. & York Ave. - meet at the lower dog run inside this entrance
FINISH: Same as Start
Please join us for a 29-mile, guided bike ride on the East Coast Greenway through 5 Islands of New York City - Manhattan, Randalls & Wards Islands, Queens, and Roosevelt Island. The route will head north from the starting point up to the High Bridge (NEW this year!), South through the Bronx (NEW!), across the Randall's Island Connector (NEW!) around Randall's & Ward's islands, then over the Triboro/RFK bridge into Queens, south to Roosevelt Island and then finally either by Tram, F train, or via the Queensboro bridge, back into Manahattan.
We intend to make stops at several locations along the route to discuss notable events and landmarks including a visit to the new Four Freedoms Park on the southern end of Roosevelt Island. The ride will proceed at an easy-going pace of 10 - 13 MPH.
Please bring what you'll need such as water, snacks, a spare tire, and PLEASE wear a helmet. We usually ride rain or shine but if the weather is particularly unpleasant, you will receive a cancellation email by 7:00AM on the day of the ride.
