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.

Summer Fun with Video

A recent article from the New York Times on the all the video documentation happening about traffic conflicts between pedestrians, bicycles and vehicles. These are all interesting to watch and BRBR can't help but feel that the attitude in each is kinda finger-pointy and taken as a group, the pointing is going in all directions.

On that note: who's insane-o enough to ride a bicycle opposite the direction of traffic on Park Ave South in Manhattan?! It's on the 3-way street video. Geez.
