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#2: Brooklyn Waterfront

OK, so we actually missed this one - it was last weekend on Sunday, July 8th. However, I spoke with a rider who did participate (full disclosure: this rider is also my full-time employer for the past 10 years) who raved about the ride and the amount of information that was gained, in addition to having an enjoyable day. Members of the National Parks Service we also partial organizers of the ride in combination with the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative. National Parks in Brooklyn? Of course! The riders could have even stopped in to see the race happening at Floyd Bennett Field (an NPS site).

The route rolled through our own Bay Ridge neighborhood, along the bicycle path of Shore Road.
