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.

RRR#1: Coney Island

Our first photo submitted by a blog follower, from the beach!

Today, we have our first RRR submission (Real Rider Route): Coney Island! Where else would a bicycle rider from Bay Ridge go?

Just over 4 miles of riding from the base of the Verrazano Bridge gets you to the sand and a bit farther takes you to the NY Aquarium.

This route follows the harbor bike path to its end at Shore Parkway, follows Shore Parkway access road heading south, a little jog onto Cropsey Ave and VoilĂ .... Surf Avenue!

This rider followed a similar path backwards, but took Cropsey to Bay 48th and Shore Parkway North to the underpass under the Belt Parkway at 26th Ave. She then rode on the sidewalk of Bay Parkway access road to return to the harbor bicycle path.
