Pedal through town this weekend and admire the changing seasons.

The Queens Bike Initiative, a bicycle advocacy group, is organizing a Fall Foliage Ride on Sunday through Jackson Heights to Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, leaving from Travers Park at 9 a.m.

The ride will be approximately 20 miles, starting in Jackson Heights before gathering more people at the Unisphere at 9:45 a.m. The group will then ride from Kissena Corridor Park and Kissena Park, to Cunningham Park and Alley Pond Park to see the Queens Giant, the tallest tree in the City.

The group will stop for lunch at the Hindu Temple in Flushing on its way back to the Unisphere, where the ride will officially end around 2 p.m.

Riders participating are encouraged to bring water and bike locks.
