Brooklyn Bridge Birthday Bike Ride
Here are some photos from the annual 2004 Brooklyn Bridge Birthday ride on May 24th. Every year, we ride to the top of the bridge and are met with birthday cake for all. Join us this year for the bridge’s 122nd birthday bash. As always, on May 24th!

A brief pause to avoid getting rain spots on all that chrome. El Presidente from the PRSC is the first to pull out his chamois.



The Bronx is Up and the Battery's Down
Last year was also the 100th anniversary of the subway system which was celebrated by a ride of the entire length of the 1-9 lines. First below ground, then above riding Broadway from the Bronx to the Battery.

Five riders stop to represent the five boroughs at the "Crossroads of the World." Times Square was once known as Longacre Square before the famous newspaper moved its headquarters to this neighborhood from lower Manhattan. Times Square also celebrated its 100th birthday in 2004. Mayor McClellen was honored to operate the first subway train from City Hall and rename Times Square in the same year, 1904.
