4th Annual: Tour de Brooklyn!!!

Photos by: David Y. & Shannon M.
This past Sunday was the 4th annual Tour de Brooklyn. The ride was moved up a week earlier than usual to celebrate the 125 birthday of the Brooklyn Bridge. The ride started in Dumbo and made its way around the many beautiful neighborhoods of our very own BK. There were over 2000 riders attending this year, and i tried my best to keep track of the race through photos:

This is me, all registered and waiting for the ride to begin

These are the other riders that had signed in awaiting for the start of the ride

There were many pauses in the ride, this was the first. you can see the many riders behind me.

this was the rest stop in Bushwick where we got PBJ's, fruit, and water (for free!)
Our stop in Greenpoint
entering Williamsburg
heading to the Brooklyn Navy Yards (which was awesome!)
The End! (...and i will be riding this again in 2009)
