Go for it Chris. That is a very good idea about heading to the green market Saturday morning. Is the Noguchi Museum like PS1 where it is free for residents or no? I also saw that the museum has an open cash bar every first Friday which sounds great. Though it is a short ride, let's see about getting a group ride in and we can make the end location the Noguchi Museum for one of the events.

That is correct about the boathouse also. I'm not sure of the full details but I believe they do kayak trips at 1pm on the weekends. A bike/kayak trip would be a great idea so let the group know what you find.

Here is the link for anyone who wants to join the group ride event tomorrow.

Thanks Christopher! That's great news and I just might setup a ride. Definitely heading to the new green market at Socrates on Saturday morning if there is any interest in that. I work at the Noguchi Museum nearby and we just installed a new exhibit on the second floor. There are plenty of bike racks down there if anyone is interested. Also hear that the L.I.C. boathouse will be doing kayak trips this summer to many of the waterfront green markets throughout Queens and Brooklyn, maybe I can setup some kind of bike/kayak trip...will look into it.

Hi Chris,

Unfortunately I did not create a ride to the PS1 party for this Saturday since I will not be able to attend but by all means, you can create one within the group and head on over. Astoria and L.I.C. residents are FREE! We actually have our own line as well so we don't have to wait in the line that wraps around the block (last Saturday the line went almost two full blocks to get in). All you need is valid ID that you live in the area and it shows that you are the person on the ID. For instance, I have used my Time Warner bill in the past. Hope that helps.

Will there be another ride to PS1 this weekend? Are Astoria residents really free? Their website says otherwise and in the past I was told you needed an ID with Astoria address.

An after work de-stress ride will be happening tomorrow between 6:45-7pm in the normal meet up spot on 19th street and 24th avenue. If you are interested and can make it, come on over!

The event page is coming to sign up.

Hey everyone,

The Tour de Queens registration is now open.  It costs 10 dollars and it is a leisurely 18 mile police escorted ride through the neighborhoods of queens.  The ride starts at 9am on Sunday July 10th.  The link is attached below.  I signed up today and it should be a lot of fun.  Lets represent our Astoria Bike Group!

Hi Everyone,

We wanted to let you know that we're running a sale on our "lightly used" bikes in LIC right now. (These are bikes that have been part of our rental fleet; we otherwise sell only new bicycles) If you have friends you've been trying to convince to ride with you, this is a great chance for them to get a bike. Sizes and colors are limited, but you can see a list of models we have on our WLA blog, our website and ourFacebook Page.
