I finally mapped it so I could accurately track my exercise for My Fitness Pal, supporting my latest effort at getting into shape. (More on that in a later post)
- The big loop is just about 6.1 miles.
- The shorter loop (the souther 2/3 of the loop, cutting across around 104th St to avoid the 84-foot climb at the top of the park) is 5.2 miles.
- The shortest loop (The southern most loop, cutting across the 72nd street transverse, mostly done by tourists on rentals) is 1.7 miles.
I usually do the big loop, adding in the milage to and from the park for an 8.7 mile ride that takes me a little under an hour. (That’s 585 calories if you’re interested.)
Of course, my time depends on how many times I stop to take pics – because there’s always something I want to capture. Here’s today’s pic –
