I did another ride out to the Rockaways, out across Jamaica Bay on Cross Bay Boulevard, with a two-stop detour on the A train since the last bridge to the Rockaways is still closed. I had planned to go further east and back around JFK but it started looking like rain so I headed back to Flatbush Avenue and home — a total of 38 miles.
It was a nice ride, through the neighborhood of Broad Channel, which is almost a small town, halfway out on Jamaica Bay — almost everyone has a boat in their backyard. And the train ride is pretty spectacular, riding across the bay with the seagulls flying alongside.
I think this is the last long ride I’ll be doing before the Bike MS ride. If you haven’t already (and thank you to everyone who did) there is still time to donate.
