We'll meet @ Washington Square Park, under the Arch - http://goo.gl/maps/2A3IU
We'll head for the West Side path, ride south, and continue to follow the entire greenway path all around Manhattan. Approximately 40 miles.
FYI, the path breaks near WTC and again at United Nations and I think again around 72nd street if I remember right. We'll be getting back on the greenway at every chance. Be OK with riding in Manhattan traffic.
Also, the east side path is not maintained as well as the west side. Conversely, this means very few bikes in our way. There are, however, runners and fisherman to watch out for.
If you've never ridden completely around Manhattan, you need to do this.
Things to bring:
- Spare tubes, patch kit & mini tools to change a flat
- Cash, credit card, metro card, ID
- Positive Attitude
This is a very easy, fun recreational exercise ride. Due to the nature of the greenway, the pace will be about 10-12mph for the vast majority of it. Especially the east side. Safety 1st.
