I’d like to go on a bike tour or two this summer and came across the Brooklyn Baseball Bike tour via Bike Blog NYC. I love baseball and bicycles, New York City and Brooklyn, and would love to combine them. But I wish the overall tour was a bit more than….10 miles.
Bike Brooklyn Baseball
100 years of baseball history in 10 miles and 3 hours! Whether you live in Brooklyn or not, most baseball fans know about the great Brooklyn Dodger teams of the 1950s. You’ve probably heard about Jackie Robinson and the color barrier, the magic of Ebbets Field, or the meteoric rise of Brooklyn’s own Sandy Koufax. This bike tour takes you from the roots of Civil War era “base ball” to the exit of the Dodgers in 1957… all while rolling along one of the finest circuits of urban bike paths in the country.
Meet in Brooklyn in front of Ride Brooklyn bike shop, 468 Bergen Street (bike rentals available). Trains: 2/3 to Bergen; 4/5/6/D/N/R/M/LIRR to Atlantic-Pacific
