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.

Vision 2020 - Comprehensive Waterfront Plan

Map of Opportunity Areas from the Department of City Planning

The Department of City Planning has released a draft report for public comment regarding the development and future planning for the entire length of the New York City waterfront. The entire plan can be downloaded for review and comments can be submitted until Nov 12.

Have a look and let the City know what you think - our neighborhood has the great benefit of being at the mouth of the New York Harbor with a bicycle and recreational path along the entire length. Of course, this makes Bay Ridge the envy of all NYC but there are some opportunities to make it even better.

Bay Ridge is in the area noted as "Reach 15".
