Kosciuszko Bridge via Manhattan
Let's ride to the Kosciuszko (Ko-CHEW-sko) Bridge.
We'll cross the Queensboro Bridge, ride the scenic Hudson River Greenway (the non-bumpy lower portion), cross the Manhattan Bridge, shoot up Hipster Highway in Williamsburg, then ride over to and cross the Kosciuszko Bridge.
We will picnic at Marsha P. Johnson State Park about 17 miles into the ride so bring your lunch as there is no planned lunch pickup stop.
The route is pretty flat except for the bridges.
The ride begins in Long Island City (western Queens). The exact starting location will be emailed to the first 8 registered members.
Please "Unregister" if you subsequently decide that you cannot join the ride so that members on the wait list can assume your spot. It's the couteous thing to do.
Bring the usual bike repair equipment (spare tubes, multi-tool, etc.).
Bring snacks and hydration. Dress appropriately for the forecasted weather that day. The ride could be cancelled due to weather so keep an eye on this ride listing for any updates.
Be familiar with the Club guidelines for riding during COVID. Bring and wear a mask that covers the nose and mouth at all times including while riding and except while drinking or eating (but maintain social distancing). Bring hand sanitizer.
Please ensure that your bike is in good working order and that you can maintain a moderate speed range.
