Cemetery Perimeter Tour - Urban Exploration Series

Join us as we travel around Queen's and Brooklyn's most famous cemeteries (Calvary, Mount Zion, Mount Olive, All Faiths, St John, Mount Lebanon, Cypress Hills, Mount Carmel, New Union, Mount Neboh, Machpeleh, Beth Olom, and Mount Judah). PHEW ! Some we heard of, some we haven't, but after this tour we will know them all. Speaking of Queens, we will also be riding through some of the boro's lovely parks, which include Juniper Valley Park, Forest Park, and Highland Park. We will be traversing different neighborhoods in Queens, which has been named "The Most Diverse of the Boros" (and of course just for fun we threw in some hills) and home to some very famous people: Ray Romano, Martin Scorsese, 50 Cent, and the Nanny herself Fran Drescher. And, not to be out done by the Nanny, Mr Howard Stern.

We will stop to pick up lunch from one of the restaurants along Woodhaven Blvd. There's several cuisines to choose from including Greek and Mediterranean, Colombian, Thai, and Indian. Then we will eat in Juniper Valley Park a few blocks away.

What to Bring - Your bikey stuff - lights, hydration, spare tube, helmet, and a bag to carry your lunch.

Weather - Oh we hope Mother Nature will be kind to us, but always check website night before or early morning of. Rain, snow (we hope not) or extreme high winds will reschedule this ride. Please dress for the season.

Come join us as we go round the cemeteries and oooh and ahhh at some of the most beautiful cemeteries in Queens and Brooklyn on an early Spring day. Dust off those bikes and bring your climbing gears. We have a few FUN HILLS to climb just for you.
