StreetFilms: Sadik-Khan Rides the Tour de Brooklyn

 

Tour de Brooklyn - 2007

A StreetFilm by Clarence Eckerson Jr.
Running Time: 3 minutes 25 seconds

The third annual Tour de Brooklyn was a special treat as New York City DOT Commissioner Janette Sadik-Khan rode the entire event with over 2,000 enthusiastic cyclists. The new commissioner introduced herself to riders at the beginning of the ride and had some very positive things to say about cycling in New York City. The ride covered 18 miles, starting in Grand Army Plaza, heading down 4th Avenue to Bay Ridge, then stopping in Dyker Heights for a respite before returning to Prospect Park. As always with the TdB, the emphasis was on friends, family, and fun.
