A Freedom Ride: #routewithapurpose

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.
Ride in solidarity in Good Co Bike Club’s "Freedom Ride: #RouteWithAPurpose" honoring Juneteenth. The ride will start at the steps of the Brooklyn Museum, travel to Coney Island and return to the historic district of Fort Greene Park — inspired by locations and landmarks relevant to the Black community and will include stops at Black-owned restaurants, which will provide refreshments.
"Juneteenth is the emancipation of Black Americans. It is a day of freedom and independence," said Andrew Bennett, the founder of Good Co Bike Club. "The feeling we have when riding down a street on our bikes provides a sense of freedom, so we wanted to pay homage to it all on this day."
