Join Friends of The QueensWay, 5BBC (5 Borough Bicycle Club), and TA (Transportation Alternatives) Queens Committee members in a ride from Rego Park to Ozone Park to explore the future route of the QueensWay. We will make several stops, and brief hikes onto the rail line before officially ending outside the Aqueduct Race Track and Casino in South Ozone Park. Riders wishing to take the A train back to Manhattan can continue to Aqueduct Station. Peter Beadle & other Friends of the QueensWay will discuss the history of the abandoned rail line and give updates on progress.
