The Cyclone Ride goes to Coney Island Amusement Park (Brooklyn) from Manhattan. In July and August, we should get there just in time for fireworks! This is a casual ride at a relaxed pace.
Bring locks as we plan to lock up and ride the rides. Bring money for food and amusements, and a swimsuit if you plan to hit the waves. We usually spend about an hour and a half in the park, on the beach (and in the water!), on the boardwalk, and at Nathan's, and everyone has a GREAT time! Some people return on the subway, and others ride back in informal groups. Rain cancels.
7 p.m. at the Manhattan side of the Brooklyn Bridge (southwest corner of Chambers and Centre Street/Park Row)
7:25 in Brooklyn at the Carroll St. Drawbridge (Carroll St. between Nevins and Bond)
8:00 at the 69th Street Pier in Brooklyn at the Shore Parkway bicycle path entrance (take 68th Street past Owl's Head Park and bear right).
