My favorite NYC Bike rides

Routes that I like that begin and end in my upper East side neighborhood.
  1. Over the GWB and back. A quick jaunt into Jersey, turn around and come home. 18 miles.
  2. Coney Island. Take the long way, under the Verrazano going, take Ocean Parkway home. 41 miles.
  3. Flushing Meadow Park. The Unisphere is your ultimate destination. 23 miles
  4. Full Perimeter of Manhattan. Mostly all waterfront. 32 miles.
  5. Five island tour. Manhattan, Roosevelt island, Randals Island, Wards Island and Long Island. 22 miles.
