My late sister-in-law's house was right behind that townhouse complex! Last time I saw it was when I came over to repo the Toyota from her 'friend'. Brings back some no too good memories of the funeral, legal challenges, fights with "in-laws" etc. Wonder what the house looks like since she left it to her trashy friend? Probably has junk cars in the yard by now......

Anyway, that boardwalk was a nice place to putter along on a warm day on your MTB. Still, I'd think that Broadway or any other parallel street would be better than bumping down along th boardwalk in a roadbike.

Is that where you were? I don't ride on the boardwalk so it was hard for me to tell. When I need to do a flat ride I go out that way from Brooklyn. It's a nice ride except for all the lights and traffic.

It must have been a beautiful ride with the water that calm. It's usually blowing like a mofo over there. How about some more detail, or a route plan?
