We’ll start at the Manhattan Bridge at Canal & Forsyth and cruise through 33 miles of Brooklyn’s most beautiful and interesting neighborhoods, including Cobble Hill, Park Slope, Prospect Park, Sunset Park, Bay Ridge (and more!). There are several food options on this route including Batata at E2 and Fort Hamilton Parkway, or the Opera Cafe in Sheepshead Bay, and an ice cream stop at Ample Hills Creamery in Prospect Heights. Many NYC park restrooms are on the route too. After lunch it's back to the Manhattan Bridge where we started.  

The route is mostly flat (note the "mostly") except the Bridge. If this sounds boring, don’t be so quick to judge! This ride’s got beaches, leafy green parks, gorgeous Victorian homes, classic Brooklyn brownstones, views of the iconic 1926 Cyclone wooden roller coaster, and much more. You’ll discover parts of Brooklyn you never knew existed.

This ride is great for new members and not-new members. We are never very far from a subway stop should a bail out be needed.
