Future Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway Bike Tour

Join Brooklyn Greenway Initiative for our annual spring bike tour along the northern 10 miles of the planned Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway route. This is a guided ride at a family-friendly pace, with stops for restrooms and water. Make sure your bicycle is in good working order and bring a spare tube, extra water, sunscreen, snacks and a camera!

We’ll ride from Greenpoint to Red Hook, and then loop back to Pier 6 at Brooklyn Bridge Park for those who would like to attend the Governors Island Family Festival and/or tour the OpSail 2012 visiting vessels. PortSide has prepared a local guide that includes details about the ships docking on the Brooklyn piers.

To RSVP, send your full name to ride2012@brooklyngreenway.org. Ride is free but you must pre-register by Friday at 5:00pm!

 

Ride start: Meet at the northernmost end of Manhattan Avenue in Greenpoint, on the shores of Newtown Creek. Please arrive by 9:30AM to check in. Note: There are no restrooms at the ride start.
Public transit: G to Greenpoint Av (Brooklyn); 7 to Vernon Blvd/Jackson Av (Queens)
