Tour of Staten Island-4.13.14

I know Staten Island’s got lots of free right turns on red (for motorists) and can be fairly bike unfriendly…but it’s also a really amazing place to discover on bicycle.

-Amazing Boardwalk on the Beach, fourth largest in the world.
-Tugboat Graveyard (shhh…it’s a secret)
-Fort Wadsworth, for all you war history buffs.
-Wolfe’s Pond Park, mountain bike trails.
-Highest Point on the Eastern Seaboard. (Todt Hill)

Here is a great opportunity to see NYC’s undiscovered borough.

Both routes are supported by rest stops stocked with KIND Bars, fruit, Osmo sport drink and good old H20 . The tour is a ride-at-your-own-pace event on roads open to traffic. Unlike other T.A. borough tours, there will not be an NYPD escort or road closures. The route will be marked with painted arrows, riders will receive a cue sheet and will be free to begin the tour as soon as they have checked in and received their official rider bibs. Riders will be supported by volunteer ride marshals and limited sag-wagon services.
