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.

3rd Annual Brooklyn Waterfront Epic Ride

The Brooklyn Waterfront Epic Ride is coming on July 30th, 2011, all along the Brooklyn Waterfront. The ride starts in Greenpoint at 9am. And for all the Ridge-ites, there will be a pickup point in Bay Ridge!

Join with the bicycle riders at 10am at Owl's Head Park, near the comfort station at 68th Street between Bliss Terrace and Narrows Avenue. Google Map link here. Depending upon their speed, riders may arrive from Greenpoint as late as 10:30am, so be patient in case they don't arrive at 10am, sharp.

Be sure to preregister for the ride at the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative's website. One of the members of the Greenway will bring a sign-in sheet and provide maps and other information. Local Bay Ridge riders welcome as volunteers to help facilitate the day and sign in. Feel free to send us an email at brbrbrooklyn@gmail.com.

This will be a great way to meet other riders in the area and see the future of the Brooklyn Waterfront!
