More than 1,200 bicyclists set off from Flushing Meadow Park Sunday morning to ride 20 miles in the fourth annual Tour de Queens.

The ride is billed as a family-friendly bike tour that offers "the experience of the borough of Queens as only a bicycle can show it," according to organizers.

The course takes cyclists through parks and neighborhoods of eastern and northern Queens, including: Corona, Forest Hills, Glendale, Ridgewood, Maspeth, Sunnyside, Woodside, Jackson Heights, as well as a rest stop in Forest Park.

The first Tour de Queens was in 2008, when 500 bicyclists were registered.
