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.

Running for Your Life

Every year at marathon time, a whole lot of good articles begin to appear about healthy lifestyles and the people who benefit from it. This one is about NYC's own Dr. Thomas A. Farley, the city's health commissioner.

At BRBR, we're about pedal power, not running, but the lessons are still equally good ones.

Today is a day that a car is useless in Bay Ridge because the marathon route slices the neighborhood in half. If you are not running, take out your bicycle, ride over to 4th Ave and go watch the runners. (You can pass under the marathon at 4th Ave by using the subway station entries) Enjoy!
