Is this the entrance to the bikeway?
I thought I was on the Long Island Expressway Service Road, but the map says "Horace Harding Expressway" (I believe the Horace Harding predates the LIE, and the LIE was built on top of the Horace Harding).
Anyway, I was riding the LIE service Road Westbound, And I didn't want to ride a bicycle onto the Cross Island Parkway. So I made a left and went down the Douglaston Parkway. A short ways down, I found a bikeway, and turned right and followed it. I met another bicyclist who agreed with me that I was going in the wrong direction. But Google maps satellite photos show this bikeway to loop around , going under overpasses of the cloverleaf six times.
The darned bikeway starts nowhere and ends nowhere. It adds a half mile to the course I had originally mapped out.
And none of these bikeways are on any map. The best indication is when the satellite view and the street view line up. In the case of the above photo, the satelellite view is blocked by trees.
Any questions? Any Comments?
BTW, I went 14 miles, from Roslyn to Jamaica, and took the train home.
