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#2: Atlantic Avenue at Hoyt Street

Just 5 days after identifying EBI #1 at Avenue P, another Epicenter of Bicycling Interest has been found at the corner of Atlantic Avenue and Hoyt Street.

While riding home from Manhattan and heading back to Bay Ridge, a member of the BRBR staff was in the bicycle lane at Hoyt Street, waiting for the light to change to cross Atlantic Avenue. A pedestrian at the same corner came over to ask about how far we rode our bicycle and how to ride out of New York City and go upstate.
