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 #4: Manhattan Bridge

Another location has been identified, this time on the N train as it passed over the East River, midspan on the Manhattan Bridge. Two women returning home to Brooklyn in the evening were eagerly discussing their plans to pull their bicycles out of winter hibernation and have them prepped for the upcoming riding season.

Gauging their excitement, BRBR couldn't bear to tell them about the bicycle lane they will never ride upon at Bay Ridge Parkway, scuttled just hours before.
