    lack of signs at NYC borders

    This isn't, strictly speaking, a bicycling issue. But I thought that it might be of interest to fellow bicyclists, as we tend to be very aware of geography.

    It's unfortunate that the borders of...

    It's a great bike street because it's wide enough to accommodate the traffic while leaving plenty of room for bike riding. Maybe on weekdays it's busy; but on Saturday and Sunday, in the afternoon...

    I rarely go out to Long Island; but I found myself out that way on two consecutive days last week, once to go to a concert in the park. I don't know about the lane on Hempstead Tpke. But I was happy...

    Ah, right. I neglected to mention that. I took the Staten Island Ferry back to (as you aptly put it) civilisation. Taking a ferry kind of wrecks the purity of the ride. But it's the only way to...

    I did look at the map. Sure, rides like that are wonderful. I have done many variations of that same sort of thing through the City. Another big circular ride I've done several times is one which...

    Well, I'd like to thank you for bringing this up. It's not too much to ask the posters on this (or any other) board to present themselves as intelligent educated adults.

    Of course, everyone makes...

    Right. The Conduit is definitely on my list of streets to avoid. Remember we were talking about Queens Blvd. earlier; the Conduit is far worse. Queens Blvd. is a street that I tend to avoid, but will...

    You definitely can go through the park. You don't even need to make a right on Myrtle; just go straight across Myrtle as 80th St. hits it to find an entry to the park on the south side of Myrtle. You...

    Riding the wrong way is a very bad thing to do. Not only is it dangerous, but it's destructive, as it creates a terrible impression. This sort of behaviour endangers not only the expansion of...

    Right, I understand that you want to do the big circle. Well, if you don't mind walking your bike through sand, then Bob's your uncle.




    I see. Well, then, you can get off the Greenway after...

    Queens is actually not bad to bicycle in. Of course we don't have many bike lanes, which is a shame. But there are plenty of great streets that are bike-friendly.

    Queens Blvd., however, is not...

    Linnefaulk - Hehe, thanks! I am pretty proud of myself, I have to admit.

    10 Wheels - I sure will try to keep it going! As long as the weather stays hot, I will rack up some good totals.

    The only reason I had the time to do all of this riding is that I took lots of vacation days. I save up my vacation days all year, and use them primarily for riding in the summer.

    celebrating my best-ever month

    I'm very happy to report that in July I had my best month of riding ever. I passed 1000 miles for the second time, totalling 1065 miles, and breaking my previous record of 1002 that I had set last...

    The answer is in the thread's title: it's the only way to get to Newark by bike from New York -- or, for that matter, from Jersey City or Hoboken.

    That part of Newark is certainly not the most...

    Right, but 6pm at this time of year is neither night nor dusk. The afternoon sun still shines brightly at that hour in mid-July.

    Thank you for the detailed information and for the pictures! Maybe I'll try it when I next get out there.

    So, how about that other question: was that you on the Kearny-to-Newark bridge on the...

    Ah, OK. I understand. The full round-trip from where I am in Queens amounted to about 70 miles. So it makes perfect sense to do things at the pace at which you're comfortable.

    This is a little off your topic, and entirely none of my business, but I'll take a chance and ask anyway: if you're only coming from Queens, why even bother with driving? Wouldn't it be nicer to...

    Great! I will look forward to those pictures! And I would like to know exactly where you joined up with Raymond Blvd.

    As it happens, I was around there yesterday, as I did a 105-mile round-trip to...

    Here's the Google Maps thing that I mentioned, which shows a bikeable route north from the bridge landing in Newark.

    That's completely illusory, right? I originally thought that I'd check it out;...

    Well, clearly it could be a lot better. But I am happy that such a connection exists at all.
