Is anybody (else) interested in riding out to the beginning of the B-SIG at the Statue of Civic Virtue on Saturday morning? I imagine it would mean meeting at the QB Bridge at around 7:45. I haven't ridden the bridge in years, so I'm not certain of the access, and I'm not yet even certain of riding, so please respond if you're interested.

Queensboro Bridge access

Bridge access from the Manhattan side is at 60th and 1st, SW corner. The bike/pedestrian path is open. Choose your approach, ride west up the ramp, make the hairpin left, and you're Queens-bound on the bike/pedestrian path.

Maps detailing bike access to the East River bridges can be found on Transportation Alternatives' website at http://www.transalt.org/info/maps.html.

I'd join you, but I'm coming from the Brooklyn side.

Thanks again, John.

If you decide to ride out to Kew Gardes, access to the Queensboro bridge is easy - enter bike path at 61st Street/Just west of 1st Avenue. Good luck!
