Bike to the Beach

Summer bike routes have been dealt sort of a serious blow this year with the continued closure and repairs on Fort Tilden, but for more committed riders—it's a long ride, so maybe skip this if it'll be your first bike trip around Brooklyn—the route to Jacob Riis Park and the Rockaways is still a beautiful one. It also still comes with the promise of sustenance (and, I suppose, the ocean) at the end, making it pretty perfect a day trip for those couples that are always biking everywhere together. Best to plan your route in advance (Ride the City gives foolproof directions), and make peace with the knowledge that you'll likely come out of this a little more red-faced and sweaty than usual, and that it will be well worth it.
