    Morning ride partner in Brooklyn?

    I used to communte, Bklyn<>midtown. Now I work from home and can't seem to get myself out on my bike as much as I'd like, but I'm hoping having a partner might motivate me.

    I live near Prospect Park and wouldn't mind doing about 45 minutes to an hour starting at 7:30 or 8:00 am. Since the park can get monotonous, I'd also like to mix it up a bit by, for example, taking one of the East River bridges over and back or connect to the greenway to the Verrazano Bridge and back or whatever.

    Let me know.
    Thanks
    Glenn

    Thanks, Henria. I'm actually thinking weekday mornings. I'm not as able to get away other times.

    I'm game a couple of days a week. I've recently been into building up my power so you might see me carrying extra weight around...a chain/lock and bag of rocks (aka old laptop).

    I work from home as well and usually go for my ride late morning/early afternoon in Prospect Park. I Live a few blocks from the park(3 blocks down from the Pavilion.

    Jeebusaurousrex,

    I was carrying a chain/lock and several pounds of groceries this morning.

    What days are good for you? And a good meeting place?

    I'm at sunset Park, about 5-10 minutes to Prospect Park south on the bike. We can also meet up somewhere on 5th Ave if you want to do a route over one of the bridges. I'm pretty flexible, just depends on which direction you're coming from.
