July 24, 2021 // 0 Comments

Dispatch From the Trail – Second Edition July 7, 2021 By Lenny Librizzi This trail is a 25 mile loop bicycle ride on Staten Island.

The route includes the North and East shores and Mid Island. It could be expanded to circle the whole island if you have the time or energy for a 40 to 50 mile adventure. I [...]
