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.

Epic Ride in Bay Ridge

Yes, it happened! The Brooklyn Waterfront Epic Ride passed through Bay Ridge and many local riders from Bay Ridge and nearby neighborhoods met with the group at Owl's Head Park. The riders continued to the 69th Street Pier and the Bay Ridge Promenade, continuing towards Jamaica Bay and Rockaway Beach.

The ride included bicyclists of all kinds and ages. the ride was organized by the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative. Members of the National Parks Service even joined for the event (see the green NPS shirt in the photo below)!

Two Firefighters from California are riding bicycles across the country with plans to arrive in Brooklyn for the anniversary of the September 11th tragedy. They left the City of Santa Clara on August 2nd and are currently in Wyoming. I was searching for their web site and found your site. I thought some of you may be interesed in their ride. You can follow Darryl and Doug at these sites. Hopefully, they make it to your city in honor of the 343 firefighters that died in the line of duty 10 years ago.
