This ride leads through residential neighborhoods with a suburban feeling to the Staten Island Greenbelt, 2,800 acres of interconnected natural and sculpted green spaces. Along the way, stop off at the College of Staten Island’s parklike campus, skirt the edge of Freshkills Park, and explore LaTourette Park’s woodlands and wetlands. Cycle through the historic seventeenth- century parish of Richmond Town, test your uphill biking powers on Lighthouse Hill, and dig deeper into Staten Island’s flora and fauna at the Greenbelt Nature Center. Return to your starting point via railway or beachfront bikeway.
