On Saturday, Adam Ehmer, Adam Laybourn and me, J. Matt Hoch, went for a rad bike ride.
We left from my place in Astoria, and rode over the Queensborough bridge.
We crossed into Manhattan and rode through Central Park.
We made it to the West-side bike path that rund up the Hudson River.
We went up through Riverside park and made it to 180th st. We got on the George Washington Bridge Bike Lane.
Riding over the bridge was awesome. We saw some serious bikers and crazy people on the bridge. The bridge had an excellent view.
We ate lunch at a park in New Jersey.
The path through New Jersey as treacherous. The Hudson bank in NJ is really weird, with strip malls and grocery stores right up to the water. There are lots of decomposing old piers, new apartments built on piers and a few heavily polluted Superfund sites.
We made it to Hoboken. We were planning on taking the Hoboken ferry back to Manhattan, but it was closed. We took the PATH train instead.
Once we made it back to the City, we drank some beers before heading home.
Both Adam L. and my computers failed during the ride. We estimated the total distance to be between 35 and 40 miles.
