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.

Lane named SUE!

Sure, you probably know all about the efforts of "well-connected New Yorkers have taken the unusual step of suing the city to remove a controversial bicycle lane in a wealthy neighborhood of Brooklyn." (aka Prospect Park West) Read More in the New York Times

Or read the pros (by Brad Lander) or cons (by Louise Hainline).

And now inspired, the Manhattan Beach Community Group wants to sue the City under that same grounds in order to remove bike lanes along Oriental Boulevard. Read more in the Courier Life.

Well, we can only think of the fights that are inspired when anyone shouts "Sue!"
