South shore of LI to NYC?

Does anyone have a good route or link to a route for the south shore of Long Island to NYC?

Thanks.

Roughly where on the south shore, and where in NYC ?.

Different suggestions depending on Queens to north Manhattan, or thru the Rockaways and Brooklyn to lower Manhattan.

Here's a 45 mile one-way Ride With GPS route from east Massapequa Park to the Brooklyn Bridge in lower Manhattan.

Thanks for the reply. Starting in Cedarhurst. I'm going to go through the Rockaways, then Brooklyn, into the city. Thanks.

The Ride with GPS map route should be useful. it's my commute from Freeport. I indicated to use Bedford Ave. as that has a painted bike lane and is a bit less crazy then Nostrand or Coney Island Ave(s). Note as well that the bike path along the Belt west of Flatbush is a bit of a mess just west of Plumb Beach, where the path fell into the bay. It's a short walk/ride around on the grass.

The rest - Ocean Ave to Prospect Park, then down to the Brooklyn Bridge is all on marked bike lanes. The city bike map shows all this.

Solid advice.

I've done Astoria to Eastern Hicksville, and that gets tricky. The absence of bike lanes on Long Island is stark.
