Route Description

Departure: Shalimar Diner in Rego Park, 6368 Austin St., Rego Park
Get Directions → Been thinking of commuting into Manhattan but not sure of the best route or what to expect? This is a great opportunity to try it out with experienced company and a tested route. This ride is suitable for beginner riders as it will head west using mostly back streets to minimize contact with Queens Blvd and proceed at a comfortable pace. Look for me (big guy with a beard) in my green reflective vest.

Important Notes

– We ride safe and leave on time. Please let your fellow commuters know asap if you can’t make it.

– An important goal of the biketrain to allow less experienced cyclists to gain experience and confidence — and provide safety in numbers. That means we often ride at a slower pace than experienced commuters are used to. If you’re usually speedy be prepared for a more leisurely pace.

– New York law requires your bike be equipped with a bike bell and reflectors at all times and front and rear lights at night. Helmets are strongly encouraged.

– You ride at your own risk (and you’ll need to sign this waiver to participate), but we’re a friendly, safe bunch, so plan on having a good time!
