The Epic Ride

Jul 27, 2014 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

| $40

Join Brooklyn Greenway Initiative and partners for a 40-mile bike ride along the Brooklyn-Queens Waterfront.

Starting in Greenpoint and finishing at Rockaway Beach, the route showcases the potential of a fully completed Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway combined with a completed Jamaica Bay Greenway.

Following the ride, join the after-party at the beach with food from the Rockaway food vendors and a swim in the ocean! Participants can make their own way back independently via the A train or by bicycle.

Alternate starts are available at Owls Head Park (26-mile ride) and Floyd Bennett Field (14-mile ride).

$30 BGI & TA members
$40 General admission

By participating in The Epic Ride, you are supporting Brooklyn Greenway Initiative, the non-profit organization committed to the establishment, development and long-term stewardship of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway. When complete, this 14-mile landscaped route for pedestrians and cyclists will connect neighborhood parks and open spaces from Greenpoint to Bay Ridge.
