2017 Bike to the Beach
The only thing better than a summer ride with friends is one with a dip in the ocean at the end. We’ll meet in the morning in Park Slope, Brooklyn. After a short jaunt through beautiful Prospect Park, we will travel for several miles on the Ocean Parkway Bike path, the oldest in America. We will spend a couple of hours at Coney Island, where participants are free to relax at the beach, swim in the ocean, ride the historic Coney Island Cyclone roller coaster, or grab a hot dog at Nathan’s, a true NYC institution. Be sure to bring money for lunch and activities. Participants are free to join us for the ride back to Park Slope, or part ways and spend more time at Coney Island.
