When biking with younger kids it’s best to keep away from areas where there is traffic, whether vehicles or other cyclists and joggers. We have included a number of state parks for biking where there shouldn’t be too many people on the trail, as well as well known NY cycle routes through parks– plus a couple to tackle with older kids who are road savvy. And we put in some places where avid mountain bikers can have some fun!
The cycle route is 5 miles long, but the 13-mile shoreline along Long Island Sound will give the kids plenty of space to explore. Once they are tired of cycling, finish off with a summer swim at Orchard Beach before settling down for a picnic at the picnic tables provided – there are also grills for a barbeque.
