Saturday: Check out Bike Share in Brooklyn!
Wondering what all this bike share talk is about? Want to see what the bikes will look like and how the system will work? Then head down to DUMBO on Saturday for a bike share demo.
Join us this Saturday, September 17! Come try out the bike share bikes in Manhattan Bridge Archway, one of Brooklyn’s newest iconic spaces. The archway, which was returned to the public in 2009 after being used for DOT storage for 17 years, has hosted the Brooklyn Flea, DUMBO Fight Night, and Royal Wedding viewing party. Ride the bikes around DUMBO or just stay within the car-free Archway.
Try out the bikes then swing by the Brooklyn Local, a urban-foodie fundraising event for City Harvest down the road at the Tobacco Warehouse!
The event will be cosponsored by DUMBO Business Improvement District and will take place from 12-4pm.
Nothing will help you understand and appreciate bike share like actually using the system. Since NYC’s won’t be up and running until next year, getting your hands on a bike and kicking the tires is the next best thing. Don’t miss this.
