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.

EBI #3: West Broadway, Manhattan

We're going a bit farther afield on this Epicenter of Bicycling Interest and into an area that many long-time Bay Ridge-ites simply call "The City". Our staff confirms it did happen, though not while actually riding a bicycle but just carrying a bicycle wheel that had recently been rebuilt and repaired by the Sensesi of Bicycles.

This minor occurrence took place Friday evening, approximately 24 hours after EBI #2 in the triangular urban park at the corner of West Broadway and 6th Avenue in Manhattan. A young man and his girlfriend saw BRBR carrying the wheel and asked "Are you taking that to a shop? Where is there a bicycle shop around here?"
