biking in nyc

so, there are tons of trails just north of the city in westchester county - but like most new yorkers, i'm sans car. (duh, that's why i have the bike) - what sucks is whenever i want to ride, i need to rent a car - has anyone found any trails that one can get to using public transportation - just like the metro north, jersey transit, lirr, etc etc...?

i'd love to get out of the city more to ride - so if anyone can throw me a clue, that would be swell.



cheers,

I know what you mean... I live in Brooklyn and it's hard to find stuff to ride.
Especially if u live in manhatten and have no car... then ur screwed.
Good news is that C.L.I.M.B. has gotten a grant from the NY parks dept to make some trails in a manhatten park. I think they got like 100 grand. so it should be good.
I forgot where it will actually be, so here's their site
http://www.climbonline.org/

On that site you can find places to ride in Long Island as well, and i'm sure you can take the train to them. You can probably even take a train to westchester!

As for me I usually ride in the parks along sHore road in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn...
It's not great, but it is the best available to me.
