This event is organized together with the Bike Out Astoria group. I know that some of you like to bike but are not members over there, so I figured why not post this here too!
The plan is this so far (flexible and open for suggestions):
8:30 am will meet at RFK (Triboro bridge) bridge - bike lane entrance (Hoyt Ave & 27th Street)
Will cross bridge to Randall's Island and 125th street to Harlem
9:30 am we should be at Metro-North Harlem - 125th street station, will purchase tickets to get up to Brewster, NY ($13.25 off-peak). Train ride is 70 minutes.
9:58 am - train leaves the station - make sure you catch up with us before the train leaves
11:08 am - arrive at Brewster, NY - we can grab a quick bite at a deli
Get on the North County Trailway (http://www.nycbikemaps.com/maps/north-and-south-county-trailways-bike-map/) and bike down to Tarrytown, NY - (35 miles).
We will go to Sunset Cove again for some cold beer and fish & chips, than will take train back from Tarrytown to Grand Central ($9.75 off-peak) as we did last time (check out videos and pictures here: http://www.meetup.com/Biking-Out-Astoria/events/124508032/).
Please make sure you have the $5 bike pass for Metro-North - you can buy it in Grand Central Station on the spot - it is valid for a lifetime. Please do this before July28 so you have it ready.
Make sure you bring with you:
Metrocard & MTA bike pass
Cash for food on the road and the Sunset Cove
Water & light snacks
An extra tube in case you get a flat on the road
