Urban Athletics: Bike and Eat Queens
dim. 18 novembre à 16:30
It's been a while since we've done one of these, we've been too busy playing in the warmth of the summer sun. But now it's time to start fattening ourselves up again in anticipation of the long, cold winter to come. Let's head deep into the heart of Queens for the latest installment of my Bike and Eat series. Our mission -- to have some of the best Dosas in the city. The Plan ... Starting our ride in Manhattan from Union Square, we'll make our way over the Queensboro Bridge, riding through various neighborhoods of Queens and ending in Flushing at the Ganesh Hindu Temple Canteen. A Hindu house of worship on the street level with a delicious cafeteria in the basement, this place arguably has some of the best Dosas and other vegetarian-friendly Indian specialties this town has to offer. A place that the late Anthony Bourdain featured on his show No Reservations, and after tasting their delicacies happily proclaimed that vegetarian food doesn't have to suck. After lunch, we'll cycle a lap of Flushing Meadow Park to burn some of those calories and get some fresh air before we start our trip back to Manhattan. But wait, something is missing here ... a desert stop. We're passing through one of New York City's greatest melting pots, Jackson Heights, and we can't let the opportunity pass to explore some of this area's culinary offerings. We're going to make a stop here at the Latin dessert shop, La Nueva Bakery. We can try some of the many sweet things here that we won't be able to pronounce but luckily our taste buds don't need to be multilingual to enjoy these delights. Check out what good things Yelper's have to say about Ganesh Hindu Temple Canteen and La Nueva Bakery HERE ( http://www.yelp.com/biz/ganesh-temple-canteen-flushing ) and HERE ( https://www.yelp.com/biz/la-nueva-bakery-jackson-heights ). The Important Stuff ... - Distance to cycle will be about 27 miles round trip. This is going to be a casually-paced ride of about 10 - 12 mph. We will be riding in bike lanes whenever possible but you should be comfortable riding in traffic and in a group. Helmets are strongly suggested. - Make sure your bike is in good working order before the meetup and bring a lock to leave our cycles. Bring a patch repair kit, air pump, and spare inner tube. - Please DO NOT RSVP if you do not seriously plan to attend as space is limited. No flakes allowed! - Sorry, no guests allowed for this one. Rain cancels the meetup.
