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."
