This route travels along the East River from the Upper East Side’s Carl Schurz Park to Randall’s and Wards Islands, where you can explore miles of waterfront bike paths, playing fields, wetlands, and more. The main route then traverses the Queens- bound arm of the RFK Bridge (formerly Triboro)—which affords thrilling views of the city—and returns along Astoria’s waterfront through Queens. A shorter version of the route returns directly to Manhattan from Randall’s Island. Both versions of this mellow journey afford ample river views.
