Could this be your road to a negative calorie pig-out? This Sunday, Oct. 18, Brooklyn by Bike and Vendr TV are hosting Gears & Grub, a day-long bike tour of Brooklyn’s street food, one vendor at a time. The group will meet at Prospect Park and wheel its way through Brooklyn’s digestive tract to Chinese in Sunset Park, Latin in Red Hook, Schnitzel and Green Monster in DUMBO and on to Williamsburg for Swedish meatballs and drinks at Eurotrash (a tentative list).

The day starts at 11 a.m. by the Grand Army Plaza arch. Sign up and more details here.
