By: Rich Garr Fri, 04 Jun 2010 21:12:31 +0000 Megan and I at Gotham SideWalks have been honing our one-and-only bike tour, and it runs this Sunday (6/6). To schedule this or any of our tours at a different time, contact us. We’ve had great success with private tours and special events. I’m pasting our bike tour blurb below, but visit our website for more details and info on tours in Brooklyn Heights, Coney Island, and other other themed walks around Lower Manhattan and Brooklyn.

100 years of baseball history in 10 miles and 3 hours! Whether you live in Brooklyn or not, most baseball fans know about the great Brooklyn Dodger teams of the 1950s. You’ve probably heard about Jackie Robinson and the color barrier, the magic of Ebbets Field, or the meteoric rise of Brooklyn’s own Sandy Koufax. This bike tour takes you from the roots of Civil War era “base ball” to the exit of the Dodgers in 1957… all while rolling along one of the finest circuits of urban bike paths in the country.

Meet in Brooklyn in front of Ride Brooklyn bike shop, 468 Bergen Street (bike rentals available). Trains: 2/3 to Bergen; 4/5/6/D/N/R/M/LIRR to Atlantic-Pacific

Happy Summer, Rich

Just a quick note: we’re trying to always spell Gotham SideWalks with a capital “W”. If you could easily change it, that would be awesome. If not, no biggie. Thanks so much for the mentions!

Take Care, Rich
