Sat 7/11 @ 2:30 PM
Sixpoint social ride with Kissena Cycling Club. Start at Brooklyn Roasting at 25 Jay at 2:30 PM, ride down to the beach, finish at the Greenwood Park Beer Garden (around 4:30 PM) . All are welcome! Redbeard Bikes is proud to sponsor Kissena!

Sun 7/12 @ 8 AM
This Sunday we're heading to Piermont again (route TBD). Nothing like a spirited crew to help you over the hills! About 60 miles round-trip from DUMBO. This ride is best-suited for road bikes, but hybrids are welcome if you've been doing long distances already and are looking to push yourself! This is a no-drop ride. Please scroll down to "General Info" for details.

Every Sunday morning we ride up the West Side, over the GWB, and into Jersey...

As the summer progresses, we'll be increasing our distance, working towards two goals: the NYC Century for Vision Zero on September 13th, and the first ever Redbeard Bear Mountain ride (date TBD). There's still time to sign up for the Century!
Redbeard rides are no-drop rides (unless otherwise indicated) and we welcome riders of all levels. That said, we try to keep a lively pace so that everyone gets a workout...and we return home at a reasonable hour. We usually roll at 12-14 mph on the way to the GWB. Once we cross into Jersey, away from pedestrians and joggers, we try to keep it at 15-17 mph. But, we always play it by ear! Depending on the size of the group and the skill of individual riders, we may split into A and B groups, especially on the way home.

You are always welcome to cut out early, or split off, if our pace is too slow for you, but if you are riding with us, stick with us! It's more fun. New riders: we won't leave you behind and we'll always make sure you know the way home!

If it's raining the morning of the ride, the ride is cancelled. That said, if it's just drizzling/looks like it might clear up, come on out! In these cases we will probably stay close to home (i.e. do laps in Prospect Park) and/or get breakfast.

Please bring helmet, sunscreen, water, snacks, spare tube & flat fix kit. Rain cancels. RSVP appreciated but not required. Any questions, give us a shout.

See you on the road!
