Police arrested a motorcyclist and an ATV rider on the Van Wyck Expressway near the Kew Gardens area on Saturday after a group of bikers were caught driving recklessly, cops said.

Omid Bedi, 30, and Equilla Ross, 39, were riding on the Van Wyck Expressway at about 5 p.m. when cops came to the roadway in response to several complaints about a large group of dirt bikes and ATV motorcycles driving recklessly, authorities said.

Police found the bikers on both sides of the expressway near Hillside Avenue, and observed one four-wheeled ATV driving the wrong way on the highway. They also said they saw some of the motorcyclists lift their bikes over the expressway median before fleeing and leaving behind two ATVs and a dirt bike. Bedi and Ross were apprehended at the scene.

Bedi, a Queens resident, who was riding a blue Yamaha ATV, has been charged with reckless endangerment, criminal nuisance, reckless driving, unregistered motorcycle and improper license violation. Ross, a resident of Mount Vernon, who was driving a red Honda motorcycle, has been charged with two counts of criminal nuisance.
