Brooklyn Flea

Williamsburg to Fort Greene, Brooklyn

Start station: Metropolitan Ave at Bedford Ave

End station: Clermont Ave at Lafayette Ave

The Brooklyn Waterfront Greenway—a still-developing path connecting the borough’s waterfront—also merits a ride, serving as a de facto tour of BK’s industrial and multicultural history. First, rev up with some fine caffeine from the long-standing Oslo Coffee Roasters (133B Roebling St between North 4th and 5th Sts; 718-782-0332, Once energized, grab your wheels and explore the Greenway’s first leg via Kent and then Flushing Avenues, where you’ll coast by the ever-changing Brooklyn Navy Yard before cutting over into your destination by way of Clermont Avenue. The dock is just outside Saturday’s Brooklyn Flea (176 Lafayette Ave between Clermont and Vanderbilt Aves; 718-928-6603,, so you can treat yourself to a postpedal spending spree on vintage and indie wares, artisanal eats and other goodies.

The success of the program depends on how well the bikes are maintained, especially after the first Winter. I'm a satisfied annual member except when the green light is not activated when i redock the bike.
