Get your bikes ready for The “Spoketacular! Family Fun Ride to the East River” this Sunday!
The family-friendly event, set for October 25 at 11 a.m., will kick off in two places, Sunnyside and Astoria. Sunnyside riders will meet at Lou Lodati Playground, while the Astoria group will meet at Hallets Cove Playground.
Riders will meet in two groups, escorted by volunteer marshals, and ride down the protected bike lanes on Skillman Avenue and Vernon Boulevard, respectively.
The two groups will then converge in Queensbridge Park, where they will trick-or-treat and receive candy and surprises. It will also act as a celebration of safe and sustainable streets.
The event was inspired by the success of the May and October 2019 Family Rides, and the inaugural ride in 2018.
All riders must bring a bicycle in good working order. All children 14 and under are required to bring and wear a helmet. All participants must also wear face masks and social distance.
The event was organized by Transportation Alternatives’ Queens Volunteer Committee.
