Coming Up: Transportation Alternatives Tour de Brooklyn

Tour de Brooklyn

Are you ready for the third annual Transportation Alternatives Tour de Brooklyn? The bike tour of Brooklyn neighborhoods, parks and the waterfront takes place on Sunday, June 3 and starts and finishes at Grand Army Plaza. It's an 8AM start and the event takes place rain or shine. You need to register online, which you can do at the Tour de Brooklyn website. The tour is described as follows:
This year’s tour gets underway at Grand Army Plaza, a National Historic Landmark at Prospect Park. This year’s 18 mile tour will feature Brooklyn’s southern neighborhoods along the waterfront like Sunset, Bay Ridge, Dyker Heights and Bensonhurst and loops towards the heart of Brooklyn, Kensington and Prospect Park South to end at the Carousel.

If this is your first time to Brooklyn by bike don’t worry you can join our feeder ride, leaving from Cadman Plaza near Brooklyn Bridge. Ride will depart promptly at 7:45 am, arriving at Prospect Park 8:05 am. Safety Marshals will be provided to guide you to the GAP.

This is a family friendly ride at a leisurely pace, escorted by the police and safety marshals. There will be one rest stop along the way where you can take a break, stretch your legs and snack on some food.
It's a great chance to bicycle all over Brooklyn.
