Can anyone suggest a reasonably direct way to get out to Nassau County from the Brooklyn Bridge? Eventual destination is Fire Island ferry. I know how to go down around the water and via 59th St bridge but both those ways add a lot of extra miles which I'm trying to avoid. The through-the-middle routes I'm familiar with like Atlantic Ave are not too appealing for riding. Thanks

Brooklyn Bridge/ Myrtle/ Metropolitan/ Jamaica/ Springfield Blvd/ Merrick

Or if you're coming from the north:

Williamsburg Bridge/ Grand/ Metropolitan ... etc.

Myrtle sucks, but it's the only direct option

Try this one

This is my daily commute to work. The route basically parallels Atlantic Ave. but on quieter roads. Heading south on Bkln Bridge Blvd:

L Dean St. (long stretch w/ bike lane)
R Rochester
L St. Marks (bike lane)
X Eastern Parkway (careful--go a few feet against traffic on E.P. and cross w/ pedestrian light)
Continue St. Marks
L East New York Ave.
R Mother Gaston
L Liberty Ave.
R Wyona
L Sutter (Pitkin is actually better but it is currently being re-paved)
L 80th
R Liberty
(Optional) Bear Left 103rd Ave.
R Rockaway Blvd.
L Linden

After that I guess you could use Francis Lewis, haven't done that part myself.

Total distance is ~13 miles
