I live in Brooklyn, NY and in order to get in a decent 30+ mile ride (road bike) I either need to do 9 loops of Prospect Park (ugh..) or head into Manhattan, go up to the GWB, and onto 9W. Then I need to come back. Getting to the GWB is a real pain from Brooklyn and not reasonable time-wise weekday mornings before work, since it takes over an hour just to get out of the city.
Question: Do you guys know of any 30+ mile rides that are unimpeded by pedestrian or car traffic starting around Prospect Park? Happy to head to East New York or Queens.
