Bike the Branches is a one-day bike extravaganza that celebrates and supports Brooklyn Public Library’s 60 neighborhood library branches. From 10am – 5pm, participants bike throughout Brooklyn and visit as many libraries as they can, getting a passport book stamped at each stop. At the end of the day, prizes (including a Brompton bike!) will be awarded to the adults and children who visited the most branches.

In addition to a fun bike ride, Bike the Branches is a borough-wide party. Every library branch hosts family-friendly activities on the day of the event, and from 3 – 7pm, everyone is invited to enjoy live music, Smorgasburg food vendors and a Sixpoint Brewery Beer Garden at Central Library’s Block Party. Register here and hold off registering directly as we are waiting to hear back if they will give us a group discount.

Please register for this ride as I will get whatever benefits I can from this event for us but will need to give them a number so don't be upset if you don't get something that those who register receive. No promise of anything, but I am in discussion with them. I will be developing a route through Brooklyn that hits as many libraries in as short a time and distance as possible.
