First Bike Ride of 2008

Yay! Abe and I rode up to Astoria Park and back - about 9 miles. It was a good first ride - not too long and not too short. Astoria Park is funny - we knew we were in Queens because all the 21 year old boys were out showing off their fancy cars with their Brooklyn Tape Up haircuts. I say modified because these days the Tape Up seems to be flattened a little more against the head.

Astoria Park has one of the largest and most popular swimming facilities in the country, with a main pool and diving pool that meet Olympic standards, as well as a wading pool. The pool has a view of the Triborough Bridge and the LIRR bridge crosses right through the park.
