All month long in May, we’re joining with neighbors and biking advocates across the country to celebrate National Bike Month. Myrtle Avenue will host free events for those who bike in our neighborhood every day, as well as for our neighbors who are interested in getting introduced to urban cycling.

We’re partnering with our friends in the Better Bike Share Network to a host a bike-loving party with FREE helmet giveaways, CitiBike ride demos, free healthy and fresh drinks from Vitality Health & Wellness Bar, and a raffle to win a gift card to Urban Cycles and other biking gear.
This event is being hosted by the Myrtle Avenue Brooklyn Partnership and our partners in the Better Bike Share network, including Bed-Stuy Restoration, Fort Greene Park Conservancy, and Urban Upbound.
MAY 17: FREE BAGELS FOR BIKERS
7:30am-9:30am, at Myrtle Ave and Vanderbilt Ave
Stop by the corner of Myrtle and Vanderbilt Avenues on your way to work to pick up a free bagel and coffee at our annual National Bike to Work Day event. The 88th Precinct will also be on hand to register bikes, which assists the NYPD in finding lost or stolen bikes.
This event is hosted in partnership with The Brown Bike Girl.
MAY 23: FREE COMMUNITY BIKE RIDE
6:00pm-7:00pm, at Myrtle Ave and St. Edward’s St CitiBike Station
Enjoy a guided tour of the neighborhood on wheels during our free, guided monthly bike ride. On the fourth Thursday of the month, from May through August, The Brown Bike Girl will lead riders on a bike ride around the neighborhood, exploring local art, businesses, and more. Riders can bring their own bike or unlock a free CitiBike (depending on availability and must be 16 years or older).
