not much help, for now

Sorry, I'm not much help now. You and a couple others have recently expressed interest here on the msg brd in some particular bike routes. Sometime this fall (I hope) there will be a new ride library at this site where you can grab such cue sheets, maps, etc. I hope I am not being to premature to resist writing this as it is a longstanding and involved project containing the works and sweat equity of several other volunteer club members.

Please, email me offline to remind me. I think still may have a nice Brooklyn Bridge <-> Coney Island cue sheet at home. Thanks. -Peter

I'll give you a general route with 2 options.

Over the BB
S on Adams (service rd. on rt),
L on State St.
R on Hoyt
Left on Union-

Union to Pros Pk.
Go half-way around, about 1.6 miles, exit
R at Ocean Pk/Coney Island Ave after the downhill
Go straight onto what looks like a h'way
BR do NOT get on Ocean Pway (duhh)
L on the 1st road 1 block
L again 1st road 1 block and then
R on Ocean Parkway (take the side service rd., NOT the bike path)
Ocean parkway ends at Brighton Beach
Coney Island is to the Right (west).

Take L on Union as above
R on 5th Ave
R on69th St(Bay Ridge Ave)
L at the pier onto bike path
Path ends, go straight on service rd.
BR at end of service rd onto Cropsey (Dunkin donuts there??)
Go over bridge to Coney Island
