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.

How do you develop a greenway, park, or neighborhood space?

The Brooklyn Greenway Initiative is holding a public discussion about their development for a new pulbic open space on the Columbia Waterfront. This would be a great opportunity for the local Bay Ridge community or any neighborhood to see a process in action, maybe learn a few tips, meet a few people and bring that information back home.

More Details:

What: Columbia Waterfront Park Visioning Meeting
When: Wednesday, February 2nd, 2011, 6:30-8:30 PM
Where: The Union Street Star Theater, 101 Union Street

More Information at the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative website calendar.

BTW - the Greenway's near-term plans currently extend to Sunset Park near the Brooklyn Army terminal. The big plan is to extend through Bay Ridge, past Coney Island and out to Jamaica Bay and beyond.
