Kościuszko, Pulaski and Pierogies

New Date - Ride Switched to Friday

11:00am

20 miles / Moderate / Start Location TBD

The annual Pulaski Day Parade was cancelled in 2020 due to the Pandemic, but we can still celebrate Casimir Pulaski, the Polish hero of the American Revolution.  In fact, there were two Polish heroes in the Revolution, the other being Tadeusz Kościuszko.  These two men have been honored in NYC with bridges being named after each.  However, did you know there are also streets in Brooklyn named for them, too?

Join us for a 20 mile ride on the streets and bridges named after Pulaski and Kościuszko, finishing with a lunch stop for…what else, Polish food at Karzcma, in Greenpoint. ... more

CANCELLED - TRAIL WILL BE A MUDDY SWAMP

10:00am

CANCELED

20 ish miles / Moderate / Start Location TBD

This ride has us heading to Gerritsen Beach. This is a very remote part of Brooklyn that still maintains it's nautical bungalow colony vibe.  At the foot of Gerritsen Avenue, if you know where to look, is the start of the Marine Park Salt Marsh Nature Trail.  After a few hundred feet you are no longer part of the City.  You find yourself surrounded by tall grasses, the sounds of the City fade away.  And then you come across these amazing views of the marsh itself.  Some of this trail is bikeable, some is kinda bikeable, and some will be walked.  It's all part of the adventure.  For lunch,... more

And one of the most enduring one is the Pancake Ride. Okay, so maybe you don't have pancakes. The Broadway Diner is full of everything that's good for your soul if not for your waistline. The pies and the layer cakes are fantastic. That's if you have room. It's an easy ride across the bay on the ferry but, a LITTLE more challenging on the bridge. Then, we ride our bikes to the Broadway Diner in Bayonne... more
