There are several scenic routes in Queens that bicyclists can try this summer.
The Queens Bike Initiative wants to make it safer and easier to visit the borough's parks.
About 600 cyclists a day are expected to use the new bike lanes, according to the DOT.
The proposal would have linked existing routes in community boards 3 and 8 via Fulton Street.
The board is worried new Citi Bike riders will get hurt without a northbound protected bike lane.
A two-way protected bike lane was recently added to the street, reducing the number of driving lanes.
A plan to improve the road's biking network won the most participatory budgeting votes.
The improvements are the first phase of redesign plans for the roadway, nicknamed "Boulevard of Death."
One lane of Brooklyn traffic will be removed to make room for a bike path on the bridge, the DOT said.
The city is looking to install bike lanes on the bridge in the late spring, the DOT said.
More than a 100 residents weighed in on where Citi Bike stations should go around the neighborhood.
The DOT held a workshop in Woodside this week to get input on how to improve the roadway.
Recycle-A-Bicycle was founded in 1994 and teaches bike mechanics to youth in 30 New York City schools.
The bike lane would run along Jay Street from the Manhattan Bridge entrance to Fulton Street.
Bushwick currently only has three bike lanes.
