1. Floyd Bennett Field Hosts A Weekly Bicycle Racing Series

Every summer Tuesday since 1993, New York bikers gather in Floyd Bennett Park for a race. The flat, rough, pavement is hard enough, but when you add in the strong wind speeds it truly becomes a harrowing experience for a biker. Nevertheless, bikers from all across the tri-state area come and participate in the event that consists of a 2.3-mile loop around the field.
