Things to do in NYC this weekend on bikes.

1. Bicycle Film Festival, all weekend long. Screenings at the Anthology Film Archives.

2. Friday, June 19th-Time’s Up Coney Island Ride.
7:00 PM
Location: Manhattan side of the Brooklyn Bridge (SW corner of Chambers and Centre St/Park Row) OR 7:25 in Brooklyn at the Carroll St Drawbridge (btw Nevins and Bond) OR 7:50 at the 69th St Pier in Brooklyn at the Shore Pkwy bike path entrance (take 68th St)
Summary: The Cyclone Ride goes to Coney Island Amusement Park (Brooklyn) from Manhattan.
Details: Bring locks as we plan to lock up and ride the rides. Bring money for food and amusements, and a swimsuit if you plan to hit the waves. We usually spend about an hour and a half in the park, on the beach (and in the water!), and on the boardwalk. Some people return on the subway, and others ride.

We should get there in time to see the fireworks.

speaking of Coney Island,

3. Saturday is the unofficial start of summer with the 26th annual Mermaid Parade.
No matter what the state of this famous tourist spot as it battles developers vs the city…The Mermaid Parade is always a good time.

    DOH, I guess I should learn to read. Didn’t see that it was at #1.


  • What a great event! This sounds like such a blast. I want to remind anyone doing this to make sure they bring their bike lock. With so many people on the road and with so many bikes, you want to make sure the day’s festivities are not ruined by getting your bike stolen. Better safe than sorry!
