Central Park, West Side bike path, Manhattan Bridge, Downtown Brooklyn, Shore Parkway bike path – this sounds like a really good ride.  Where were they going?  Why, for a spin on the world’s most famous roller coaster, The Coney Island Cyclone, and some hot dogs at Nathan’s Famous.

Captain Chris Patoir and solo rider Denise Patoir conceived and led this ride.  They believe a good ride should always end in some good food.  And who are we to question that theory.

40 miles roundtrip, the return trip took them along the oldest bike path in the United States, Ocean Parkway,  over the Brooklyn Bridge and back to Central Park.
