This will be an urban adventure by meandering around Central Queens and passing by or stopping at a prime number of parks (7) to enjoy the scenery. 

 

Here's the list of Parks we'll be visiting/passing by:

1. Juniper Valley Park

2. Flushing Meadows Corona Park - We'll visit the Unisphere structure

3. Kissena Park

4. Crocheron Park

5. Alley Pond Park

6. Cunningham Park

7. Forest Park


For lunch, there are a number of places in Bayside including some sandwich shops, a Chinese restaurant and a pizza place.

 

This will be a Moderate ride, and we will be mostly keeping 12-15 mph on the flats. 

 

We're meeting outside the Starbucks on Queens Blvd just down the block from Union Turnpike, and Kew Gardens/Union Turnpike subway station (E & F trains). The Kew Gardens LIRR station is also a half mile away.
