This is a 30 mile ride that starts at QueensBoro Bridge (or the Ed Koch, if you must) and explores beautiful Queens waterfront.  Hate riding around LaGuardia airport to get to Flushing Bay Promenade?  This route takes you through scenic Jackson Heights on a bike lane.  No more Ditmars Boulevard and dodging cars coming out of LaGuardia.  We ride all the way through Flushing Meadows/Corona Park and through Forest Hills Gardens to look at spectacular homes.  We cruise through Forest Park.  Our return is through Bushwick with a long stretch on Troutman Street to look at the fabulous Bushwick Art Collective.  Ride ends at the Brooklyn side of the Williamsburg Bridge.
