    nyc highbridge park/LIRR/Subway

    Depending on my motivation in the morning I think I might jump on the LIRR with my bike and head into NYC to checkout the highbridge park MT bike trails. I already have the bike pass for the LIRR, but i was wondering is there access to the subways for bikes. Penn station is at 34th street....the park is at something like 190th. I rather not ride all the way there. I will if I have to I guess, but I would like to save my energy for the real riding.

    Anyone have any info on this place.

    You know the Puerto Rican Day parade is tomorrow.
    don't know if it could affect your trip.

    You can just catch the A Train or the #1 at 33/34 th and get off at Dyckman St. You're supposed to ride towards the rear of the train but nobody's ever made a point of that. Otherwise the subway has pretty much unrestricted bike access, 24/7 no permit required.

    If you decide to ride just head west for the Manhattan Waterfront Greenway and ride it all the way to the end.

    Oh I almost forgot. When you get on the subway, you can swipe your metro card at the special access gate and wave for the clerk to let you in.
