Transportation Alternatives launches Brooklyn Queens Tour
In just under a week Transportation Alternatives will launch the Brooklyn Queens Tour or BQT. A friendly non-competitive ride that combines the former Tour de Brooklyn and Tour de Queens giving riders a choice between two routes; a 20- mile police escorted course or a 40-mile open road course without street closures, both begin and end at Citi Field and both are accessible via subway or Long Island Railroad. This tour invites riders of all ages to experience and enjoy the largest most populous boroughs from the best seat in the house, the bike saddle. It’s a fun and new event that puts the focus on the street safety that cycling advocates have been working hard for across the boroughs.
The BQT will also showcase the key improvements being made to New York City’s bike network, like the Flushing Avenue, Prospect Park West, and new protected lanes on the Pulaski Bridge. Riders will also have the opportunity to look at the areas advocates are currently working on, like the 111th street lane in Queens and the Meeker Avenue lanes in Brooklyn. The ride will culminate at Citi Field for a lively party open to the public and Kiwi Energy will be participating throughout the ride. Kiwi Energy has been a supporter of previous Transportation Alternatives events.
Whether you want to see incredible sights, learn the secrets of bicycling through the boroughs or just challenge yourself by riding, this is the ultimate way to support the fight for better biking in New York City.
