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.

Observations on a Tuesday Morning in May

BRBR was out this morning and rode along Shore Road at several different times between 6:00 and 6:45am. BRBR counted at least 7 individual bicyclists along Shore Road at this early hour going both northbound and southbound. Bicyclists among those BRBR spotted include:

The guy with the orange jacket *
The guy with the teal jacket *
The woman on the mountain bike with the front handlebar bag *
The guy in the yellow LiveStrong jersey and shorts

(* denotes morning regulars)

Several of these folks were adding the harbor bike path to their route to make a continuous loop or were just riding back-and-forth along the ups and downs of Shore Road. If we just counted bike passes along Shore Road, there would have been 15 or more. And yes, at the moment BRBR was at Bay Ridge Parkway, a bicyclist in a black jacket was turning onto Shore Road.
