Bohemian Hall and Beer Garden (Astoria)

What is beer but liquid bread? And bread = food. So therefore, beer = food, and this ride fits within the scope of the group. For what it's worth, the beer garden also serves some pretty tasty food - kielbasa, pierogies, etc. Shamelessly copying this idea from one of my assistant org's last rides, because it worked out well and was a lot of fun.
http://www.bohemianha... Once again, route is tbd, but we'll start at the Williamsburg bridge again (Brooklyn side bike-path entrance on the north side, S 5th Pl). Meet at noon, depart no later than 12:10. Thinking scope will be about the same as last ride: around 20 miles. Guidelines:

  • You're comfortable riding in nyc traffic and can maintain an average speed of 15mph. We can't get there too late as lines start to form to get inside - it's a popular place!

  • It may be very hot - like last time :). Bring water.

  • Very important: bring a lock if you want to drink! They don't let you bring bikes into the beer garden.

  • You have to plan your own way of getting home from Astoria. If you drink, you may want to make plans to take the subway home - I don't recommend drinking and biking.

  • $5 deposit (+Amazon's fee, $0.32) required, pay online. When you show up, I will give you $5 in cash. If you don't show up, you lose your deposit.

    Great ride. Weather cooperated until we got to the beer garden - and I think the threat of rain made it not-too-crowded. Couldn't have been better.

    It was an awesome ride. We biked some streets in Brooklyn and saw some Queens neighborhoods I was not familiar with. Great all around.

    Kielbasa, burgers, pierogis, and Spaten beer. All in an outdoor picnic area that seats hundreds. What else could you ask for?

    Good ride and good time w/ a very awesome group of people. Keith picked a nice route, and the beer garden is always a nice place to end a ride.
