Kiwi Energy and The Brooklyn Greenway Initiative have had a strong partnership throughout the last couple of years. Kiwi Energy is extremely excited to be partnering with them once again in this year’s Epic Ride, taking place on the Brooklyn Watefront on July 21st.
This will be BGI’s 10thAnnual Epic Ride take and Kiwi Energy’s 6thyear sponsoring it. As one of the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative’s annual fundraisers, the Epic Ride helps fund the continued development and restoration of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway. When complete, this 14-mile landscaped route for pedestrians and cyclists will connect neighborhood parks and open green spaces from Greenpoint to Bay Ridge.
The Epic Ride takes riders on a 25 to 40-mile-long trip from Greenpoint to Riis Park Beach along the Brooklyn Waterfront, allowing them to admire the development of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway and Jamaica Bay Greenway. Riders, friends, and family are all invited to continue the fun and enjoy music, food, and drinks at the Epic After Party at the Riis Park Beach Bazaar.
“The Brooklyn Greenway Initiative demonstrates what community-driven change and sustainability can do, and is a crucial part of Brooklyn’s green Infrastructure. We’re honored to be working alongside such a valuable organization,” said Richard Booth, President of Retail Operations, Kiwi Energy.

About Brooklyn Greenway Initiative
BROOKLYN GREENWAY INITIATIVE (BGI) is the 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to the development, establishment and long-term stewardship of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway. When complete, this 14-mile, off-street, landscaped, cycling, running and pedestrian route will connect 200 acres of regional parks and numerous neighborhood parks and open spaces from Greenpoint to Bay Ridge. Founded in 2004, BGI works with community, non-profit, business, and governmental partners to create and fulfill a comprehensive vision for the Greenway, while at the same time building awareness and support among the 500,000+ residents who live along the route of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway.
Six miles of the Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway that has been completed to date and a 1.7-acre public space, the Naval Cemetery Landscape at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, are actively used by hundreds of thousands of people annually. The completed Greenway includes one of Brooklyn’s most heavily used bicycle commuter paths along Flushing Avenue. Planning and design are underway for four additional Greenway segments. New Greenway segments will incorporate design and engineering to support NYC’s goals for coastal resiliency and storm water mitigation.
BGI hosts numerous volunteer opportunities and public programs throughout the year, including Yoga in the Grove at the Naval Cemetery Landscape and the popular Epic Ride and Brooklyn Greenway Half/5K events along the Greenway. School groups help steward the Naval Cemetery Landscape while learning about urban ecology and horticulture. Corporate groups support BGI and local communities through BGI’s growing Adopt-A-Greenway program.
