Join us on a ride through Brooklyn with our destination being Grandchamps, a favorite Haitian restaurant of mine in Bed-Stuy.  Haven't had Haitian food?  Their specialty is Griot (a fried pork that is marinated and slow roasted until tender).  There are a variety of chicken, fish and vegetarian options, too.  Here is a link to their website (click on the Bed Stuy menu).    http://www.grandchamps.nyc/

After picking up our food at Grandchamps, we will head over to a park for a picnic.

This 25-mile ride will take us through several Brooklyn neighborhoods including “Little Haiti,” before heading into Bed-Stuy.  We will ride-off lunch by traveling through Bushwick and possibly making a detour for dessert at the classic Circo's Pastry Shop in Bushwick. https://circospastryshop.com/

Lunch is two-thirds into the ride (Mile 17+), so bring snacks.

Bring a mask,lock, a tube and a hearty appetite.  Remember to check the website for ride updates before heading out if weather might be an issue.

A reminder that you must register for the ride and that the exact start location will be forwarded to you.
