    I was from Brooklyn...for the first 36 years of my life. Married a Brooklyn girl in the summer of 2000 and bought a house in Long Beach, NY.

    I did a lot of riding on the bicycle path in Marine Park...up to 30 miles a night after work. Sure it is one big circle, but the ever changing scenery made it enjoyable.

    What's up Black :cool:


    Nice to meet you, guess we're both new to the bikeforums. My wife and I never been to Marine Park, is it a cool park for riding? This summer we're going to ride all over brooklyn. I'm going to purchase one of those helmet bike camera's from http://www.viosport.com/ to film all the fun. :thumbup:


    Peace.

    its a cool place to ride if you live in the area but,,,not not worth it to come from a far distance.its not no were near the scale of prospect park or some other parks. the idea with camera is cool. documenting your rides will be nice. I travel alot around brooklyn my self, there is so much to take in. Im sure you and your wife will have a great time.

    You are right about that.
    Since I lived in South East Brooklyn and had many friends in and around Marine Park, it became a familiar riding place. I would drive there to ride (nothing particularly nice in my neck of the woods) and the parking lot was convenient. Going in circles on a bicycle track/path was never exciting in and of itself, but at least there was a lot of changing scenery and activity around it.
