Register Today for 2nd Annual Brooklyn Waterfront Epic Ride!

Join Brooklyn Greenway Initiative, the Transportation Alternatives (T.A.) Brooklyn Volunteer Committee, and Regional Plan Association (RPA) for a 40-mile ride along Brooklyn’s entire waterfront that highlights the potential of a fully completed Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway. We will have brief stops at Owls Head Park in Bay Ridge and a refreshment stop at the Carnarsie Pier with an update on plans to complete the Jamaica Bay Greenway. After the ride feel free to enjoy the beach, hop on the A train back to Brooklyn, or ride back with volunteers along Flatbush Avenue, the most direct route back to northern Brooklyn.

This ride is moderately-paced (12+ miles/hour), but goes at a steady pace. Be sure to bring some food, extra water, sun screen, money for tacos, and FULLY inflate your tires (we had several flats last year due to underinflated tires)

When: Sunday, July 18th, 10:00AM – 3:00PM(ish)

Depart: Manhattan Avenue at Newtown Creek, Greenpoint, Brooklyn

Finish: Rockaway Taco on Rockaway Beach Blvd and Beach 96th Street
