Explore Brooklyn & Queens! Ride the Greenway to Fort Totten Park

36 miles (or 50+)

Sunday, March 7, 2021


Please note, I am taking a page from Jay's previous rides. I would love to have a co-captain for this ride so please comment if you'd be interested.

 

--

 

I'd love to take an opportunity to explore Brooklyn & Queens, utilizing the Brooklyn-Queens Greenway Guide.

 

This path begins in Coney Island, Brooklyn and runs all the way through to Alley Pond Park and Fort Totten in Bayside, Queens, and is comprised of 9 segments.

 

--

 

For this ride we'll complete segments 3-9, approximately 35.6 miles.

 

3 PROSPECT PARK

4 EASTERN PARKWAY

5 HIGHLAND PARK/RIDGEWOOD RESERVOIR

6 FOREST PARK

7 FLUSHING MEADOWS CORONA PARK

8 KISSENA-CUNNINGHAM CORRIDOR

9 ALLEY POND PARK TO FORT TOTTEN

 

--

 

Let's meet at GAP (Grand Army Plaza) at 10:45am on Saturday, 2/20 and get going at 11:00am. We'll do the park loop and continue on, perhaps stopping for a bite in Forest Park or Flushing. We'll finish the route just after Fort Totten which is super picturesque with a historic Civil War fortress.

 

I'll likely ride the ~13 miles back to Bed-stuy, to make this a 50 mile ride. The nearest subway back to the city from Fort Totten is the Flushing 7 train (approx 4 miles).

Anthony,

The ride looks great but are you sure about the weather? I see a forecast for 30 degrees and snow on that day.

Hi Paul, I'll monitor and let's see as we get closer. Will keep the group updated.

Hi Anthony & all. I will likely cut out after segment 7 Flushing Meadows/Corona, riding home at that point via Sunnyside/LIC/Kosciuszko Bridge to Williamsburg. Fingers crossed that it ends up a BIT warmer next weekend!

Possible to do this tomorrow (Saturday)? The weather forecast for Sunday does not look good.

Look forward to seeing everyone. Stay warm.

Hi all, my bike is still in the shop since my dooring accident, plus rainy weather all weekend is expected. That said, please feel free to make a ride for this weekend if you feel inclined. I will shift this one to next weekend. Looks clearer (for now). Hope to see you all soon.
