    My first bike ride in NYC/Summer Streets

    I made a post a couple weeks ago when joining this site asking a few questions about taking a bike on the SI ferry. Thanks for all the help. Made my trip a lot easier! Everything went well. Wanted to share my story with all of you.

    I left VA on Friday morning. Arrived at the Ferry about 1:30. The first day I just chose to walk the streets of Manhattan. Saturday though I did the summer streets. Arrived in Manhattan at 9:30 a.m. I started at the Brooklyn Bridge and went all the way up to the end at Central Park. The decided to go back the other way and ended about 12 pm. I got some pizza at a pizza restaurant. Then decided to make my way to the west side path. From there I went all the way up to around 200th street area? I can't remember exactly what it was but I saw the exit sign for Dyckham Street. I didn't see a way of getting over the high way so went back to where I could which was around 181st street. I went from there to Central Park, then through some of Central Park onto the East side. I went over hoping to find a East Side bike path but really didn't see anything. So I had to just go along streets down there. It was enjoyable though.

    On Sunday, the rain ruined a lot of my day but I got so tired of walking in the rain I went back to the ferry about 6:30 and got my bike to finish the night biking. Got back to Manhattan at 7:30 and would end up going over the Brooklyn Bridge. Unfortunately it started pouring that night! I was trying to explore the most I could. I went through China Town, SOHO, Tribeca. Greenwich Village, and took 7th ave all the way down to Church street back to the ferry. I was completely SOAKED!

    Really wish it had been a nice night because I really wanted to ride around more. But here are some picture if anybody is interested.

    Yup! About 11 hours on the bike minus 30 minutes for lunch, 30 minutes for dinner and the occasional sit down here and there.

    That's one jam-packed trip! Glad to see you made it all the way up and down the West Side Greenway. If you'd gone down the stairs at Dyckman you'd end up in my 'hood.

    Also, it looks like you've found the secret to riding on the Brooklyn Bridge unimpeded: go when it's pouring!
