Return of the Bicycle Beach Bums!
It's B-three all over again! Life's a Beach! Or is it Beach is a Life? Either way, our classic summertime and hopefully sun-filled Bicycle Beach Bum Series returns anew. One of the 5BBC's most popular ride series, Beach Bums began so many years ago that sundials were used to measure time. Not only did our bikers endeavor to search for the Perfect Tan, but we also set forth in search of the Golden Grain of Sand, a morsel rumored to have great restorative powers. This year, our BBB Series may meet at diffferent places, and visit different shores via different routes at the Leader's whims, or by popular vote. Our 2019 launch ride today will go to Brighton Beach either thru the heart of Brooklyn (Prospect Park and quiet side streets) or via the Shore Parkway/Belt Parkway bike lanes (a bit longer and noisier but scenic).. Bring bike locks, lunch money, water, sunscreen and of course swim gear. Rain cancels!
