Ride has concluded.

Ride Out to Riis Beach Like Life Is Normal

30 miles

Sunday, May 31, 2020


Join us Sunday for a ride to get some sea air. We will leave from Prospect Park, head along the South Brooklyn Waterfront, through Coney Island, and finally to Riis Beach in The Rockaways. Part of the ride will be along Brooklyn streets, part will be MUP along the river and Jamaica Bay.

 

The ride home will be shorter up Bedford Ave. If you would prefer a shorter day, you can take the ferry from Rockaway to Sunset Park or Manhattan Pier 11or take the subway.
 
We will be observing social distancing protocol, so be prepared to maintain distance while riding and use a face covering when in close proximity to others.
 
This ride will not have a a formal lead, so be comfortable navigating the route on your own as well be prepared to fix a flat.
 
There are plenty of places to stop along the route, but it's unclear which ones will be open. Since these aren't normal times, we suggest you bring enough snacks and water to be on the safe side.
 
WEAR YOUR SUNSCREEN!!!
