Tour de Queens 2009

As usual, one of Transportation Alternatives "Tour de" rides brought out mega fun and happy faces to ride bikes. This year's 2nd Annual Tour de Queens event took riders on an 18 mile circuit of the most diverse borough on the planet, introducing newbies to St. Albans, Kew Gardens, Hollis, and many other neighborhoods. Once again, the Queens Museum of Art in Flushing-Corona Park, helped host the event and Tom Finkelpearl (its president) rode the entire route. There were many more riders this year, probably due not only to this year's beautiful weather but the fact that last year's high temp was 96!
