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 on Bicycle Licenses?

The mocking tone of our prior post didn't kill the story.

The brainchild of Nica Lalli, a writer and member of Community Board 6, says “Making it easier to give people tickets with bikes will be good revenue for the city,” who also admitted she is not a “bike person."

Hasn't NYC been spending a lot of time and effort and money to encourage cycling throughout the city? Won't this be counter to that goal?

Read the full story here.

We're guessing this bicycle license nonsense will all end soon, just like Assemblywoman Cleopatra Tucker's bill in New Jersey which was withdrawn less than two weeks ago.
