This route leads past Staten Island’s prime coastal defense bastion of Fort Wadsworth, where fortification remnants stand tall beside the towering Verrazano- Narrows Bridge. You’ll then cycle along the island’s sweeping South Beach coast all the way south to Miller Field, a former Air Force airfield turned recreational spot. Bay views and beach breezes accompany you along most of this ride, making it a great option for anyone in need of a city getaway. It’s also a good option for those less confident with city cycling as most of the journey is on separated greenways.
