More Brooklyn Neighborhoods Linked Through Bike Lane Network

Biking from Red Hook to Borough Park yesterday, I was amazed by how much of the way I was able to travel down dedicated (and sometimes protected) bike lanes. From Red Hook I headed up 9th Street to the new and sadly controversial two-way protOected lane on Prospect Park West, entered the Park at 15th Street and exiting to take the protected bike lane down Ocean Avenue. Often when I'm traveling to southern Brooklyn, I hop on the train to avoid the speeding traffic that comes hand-in-hand with the car-centricity of the outer edges of the borough. But having safe and separated bike lanes made all the difference. Now if only I didn't have to compete with crazy drivers on 4th Avenue on my commute to Bay Ridge.
