We are pleased to announce that the 5th Annual Epic Ride will take place on Saturday, July 27, 2013.

The Epic is a 40-mile bike ride from Greenpoint to Rockaway Beach, showcasing the potential of a fully completed greenway along the Brooklyn and Queens waterfronts. The route will be marked, allowing riders to travel in a group that moves at their own pace.

As a result of the devastating effects of hurricane Sandy, the Epic route has been adapted somewhat from prior years. However, riders will have the opportunity to see first-hand the resilience of the communities hardest hit and to support local businesses as recovery continues.

Upon completing the ride, participants are invited to an after party hosted at Rockaway beach with live music and delicious food from the newly re-opened Rockaway food vendors.

Come join us for the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative’s largest, most popular and fastest growing event!
