Explore Jordan Rumsey's favorite culinary spots downtown and off the Swamp Rabbit Trail.
We see bikes as a means to connect people with their communities--and we'd like to start by introducing you to ours. These days, everybody throws around the Brooklyn brand, but Brooklyn is genuinely so much a part of who we are that our bikes are named for its streets, streets we traverse daily. On this ride, you'll see the diversity of our city (and you'll only be going a few miles!) and get a sense of our culture by eating what we eat, shopping where we shop, and taking in the sites and sounds that surround us. (And this ride isn't just for visitors! If you live in another part of Brooklyn, this is an easy and fun way to get to know Williamsburg/Greenpoint while avoiding the seriously trendy spots.)
Aussies love Brooklyn. And they love their coffee. Put two and two together and you get an up-and-coming Australian cafe scene in Brooklyn with some of the best lattes and flat whites this side of the Equator. An easy, fun way to go cafe hopping is to take your bike around the borough, stopping at great Australian cafes in Brooklyn along the way, each with its own character and loyal customer following.
Just about everyone loves pizza but pizza can hang out on your body for awhile if you don't work it off. This ride will allow you to eat lots of yummy pizza and work it off via bike so you can truly enjoy it. Each stop will be a place where you can get a slice or small pizza pie to share with someone so you aren't eating too much along the way. This is a great ride for everyone who loves pizza and not sure where the best places are to get a slice. Each one is also close to a Capital Bikeshare if you don't have a bike with you.
