I'd like to correct my previous post. THIS Photo shows the BIKE PATH Exit on the Westbound L.I.E. Service Road. If you ride your bike through here, and head North on the path in Alley Pond Park, it comes out on Northern Boulevard (at the end of 234th street ). There are No markings, you have to figure it out for yourself.

I rode into Queens on Friday. I went South on Glen Cove Road, West on L.I.E. Service Road, South on Springfield Blvd, and West on Jamaica Avenue. Was able to get the bike on an off-peak train East out of Jamaica. 22 miles. I did notice , while I was slightly off course, that the Bike Lanes on 233rd St. have been moved together to the South side of that road, as a bi-directional bikeway. Asphalt is very fresh , and the BIKE LANE markings haven't been painted yet (or is it thermoplastic? They don't use paint anymore). I credit using a rear view mirror and a 2 watt LED Brake light (which is the equivalent of 20 watts ) for not having any problems on the way . The Bike Path in Alley Pond Park isn't much help, I should've stayed on Douglaston Turnpike. But the fact is, I've got over $400.00 Dollars worth of LED Lights on my bike, the average person riding a bike wouldn't bother to have that many lights, and would probably think it's okay to ride without lights because it's daytime. I'm staying on the side of caution, keeping in mind that lights are required in daytime for Motorcycles. Anyway, I ride with 1,100 lumens of Lights on my bike in the daytime, and I have no problems.
