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.

More Bicycle Lanes, a History of New Lanes

An interactive graphic from the New York Times illustrating the new bike lanes installed and painted throughout NYC over the past 9 years.

According to the map, the following lanes were placed in Bay Ridge:

2002-3: Colonial and Shore Roads, including Oliver, 72nd St and 68th Street (Note: We are certain the southbound Shore Road bicycle lane was already in place and just restriped with the roadway repaving and lane realignment around 2002-3 See our prior post about Shore Road).

2004: Poly Place near the VA Hospital.

2009: 7th Avenue extending northward from Ft Hamilton Army Base, Poly Prep and the golf course.
