    Tour de Queens 2011

    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.
