Tour de Brooklyn
Transportation Alternatives' "Tour de Brooklyn" is a new annual bicycling event. It's not the Tour de France, but it's not meant to be that.

2nd Annual Tour de Brooklyn
Sunday June 4th, 2006

Check-in: 8 am
Line-up: 9 am
Ride: 9:30 am

We ride rain or shine!

Join hundreds of friends and neighbors for the 2nd Annual Tour de Brooklyn. The Tour kicks off from Herbert Von King Park (formerly known as Tompkins Park) in Bed-Stuy. The 18 mile route will take you through scenic Brooklyn neighborhoods to the tip of Greenpoint, and follow along the waterfront (featuring many portions of the planned Brooklyn Greenway Waterfront), down to DUMBO and Red Hook, returning to Herbert Von King Park.

If you've never visited Herbert Von King Park before, join our feeder rides, leaving from Grand Army Plaza at Prospect Park and Cadman Plaza near the Brooklyn Bridge. Both rides will depart promptly at 7:45, arriving at Herbert Von King Park by 8:15. Safety marshals will be provided by both. See "Getting There" for more details.

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, check out the scenery and grab a complimentary snack.
