Welcome to BRBRbrooklyn! Whether you are pedaling to the shore, the store, your neighbor’s stoop, or back to your own coop, this blog is for you. Bay Ridge Bicycle Routes is an effort raise to awareness within our neighborhood and among civic groups about the activities of bicyclists in Bay Ridge and other nearby communities in southern Brooklyn.

Our neighborhood’s immediate access to the harbor, less congested street traffic, friendly atmosphere, expansive parks and flat terrain (except, of course, for the steep ridge in Bay Ridge!) makes our corner of New York City one of the most fantastic places to ride a bicycle. Whether for transportation, recreation, fun or fitness, cycling is great in Bay Ridge.

Photos from the Netherlands

An inspirational post to get this blog rolling. We'll be back to Brooklyn... via Breukelen... soon.

My favorite photo: pedestrian sidewalk, bike lane, tram, car lanes, street parking. All happening in one single roadway width. This was one was shot near the Rijksmuseum district in Amsterdam, but it happens across the entire city.

As promised in the prior post, photos made while waiting for a streetcar in Amsterdam. Photos made over approximately 15 minutes, and I did not even come close to capturing everyone that was passing by.

Photos from our own Brooklyn neighborhood up next!
