Let's enjoy the final Sunday of summer.  We will meet at Crossbay Blvd to ride on the Brooklyn greenway to Shirley Chisolm Park, Canarsie Pier and over the Marine Park Bridge to the western end of the Rockaway Peninsula.  Our first stop will be to the private quaint community of Breezy Point and a special stop at the 911 Memorial.   Riding through Riss Park, then getting lunch and eat at a brand new 911 Tribute Park with beautiful views of Coney Island and the bay.  Continuing riding on the Rockaway boadwalk,  our afternoon treat will be going to Mara's Gourmet Ice Cream Shop where you can get a slushie, smoothie, ice cream such as Mississippi Mud, Sea Salt Caramel Truffle, Strawberry Cheese Cake, ices or frozen yougurt such as black raspberry chocolate chip.  They have a backyard set up like a beach and we can bring our bikes in.  You will truly enjoy!  We will return over the Crossbay Bridge, through Broad Channel, and loop around the Howard Beach neighborhood.

This is a moderate-lite ride.  Please be able to maintain 12 MPH on the greenways.  Please make sure your bike is in good working order.  Bring your helmet, mask, spare tube, hand sanitizer, sunscreen, hydration and money for lunch.

The ride will start and end in Howard Beach a block away from New Park Pizza on Crossbay Blvd.  There is ample street parking and closest train is the A train to Howard Beach Station which is less than one mile away.
