Washington Square Park
We'll meet in Washington Square Park at the arch on the north side of the park, bike down through Manhattan, over the Brooklyn Bridge and into Red Hook by the ball fields. At the corner of Clinton and Bay street, we should find a nice selection of food from street vendors. This is mainly Central American fare. I recently tried this for the first time, and it was great -- the food was phenomenal and the people were very friendly. Finding vegetarian food was challenging at times, but totally doable -- everyone there was very helpful even when I asked them annoying questions.

I'll avoid busy streets as much as possible, but there will be certain segments that involve heavy city traffic. Here's the route (not set in stone):
