Lenox Rd - Nostrand Ave - New York Ave

Lenox Road is constantly filled with double parked cars and cars speeding, making it an unsafe route without bike lanes.

Eastern Parkway - New York Ave - Brooklyn Ave

I think there should be a protected bike lane for the length of New York ave. If i bike south, I always take NY Ave back home and it does not feel safe - lots of speeding and no protection from cars.

Clarkson Ave - Woodruff Ave - Bedford Ave

There needs to be a way to get safely from Bedford to the Parkside Prospect Park entrance

Flatbush Ave - East Drive - Empire Boulevard

We really need a SEPARATED PROTECTED two-way bike lane on Flatbush Ave to connect to the recently finished Flatbush Ave lane north of here. Please consider a raised concrete barrier to prevent parking in bike lanes and prevent cars from driving in them (for reference, see Grand Street "protected" bike lane in Williamsburg where cars constantly drive and park in it because bike lane barriers are useless sparse plastic pillars). This street is insanely dangerous for bikers and a commuting/shopping bike route heading to north-western areas of brooklyn.

Connects bedford ave bike path to park. Ideally a protected bike lane to protect from double parking and aggressive traffic.

Church Ave - Bedford Ave - Woods Pl

Bedford Ave needs to be a two-way protected bike lane - cars are constantly parked in the bike lane. This comment is meant for the entirety of the bedford ave bikelane up into bed-stuy as well. It's the best and easiest connection between Flatbush and places like Bed Stuy, Williamsburg and Greenpoint (a common bike trip)

Cycling Routes
Park Circle - Coney Island Ave - Parkside Ave

There needs to be a bike lane that connects eastern area to the bike path south of prospect park. The intersections and roads around Flatbush Ave (South East prospect park corner) are incredibly dangerous and chaotic. Dedicated bike lanes would make it safer for everyone

Washington Ave - Carroll St - Crown St

There should be more east-west bike connections south of Eastern Parkway. Carroll and President St both connect to Lincoln Terrace and have tons of space for protected lanes. Drivers get every street so cyclists should have multiple safe routes too

Remsen Ave - Seaview Ave - Seaview Ave

Remsen is very wide with lots of speeding. Protected bike lanes could narrow roadway for safety and provide direct connections all the way from Crown Heights to Canarsie Park

Seaview Ave - Paerdegat Ave North - East 80 St

Connect the bike path all the way along Seaview. The road is super wide with plenty of room for protected lanes

Ocean Ave - Avenue I - Avenue H

Connect the Avenue H and Avenue I lanes and protect them from cars, we need better east west connections

Kings Highway - Avenue J - Connector

Kings Highway should get a separated bike path like Eastern Parkway, with trees for shade and protection from cars

Brooklyn Ave - Tilden Ave - Beverley Rd

The north side of Cortelyou along the cemetery would be a good 2-way protected bike lane since there are no intersections to worry about drivers

Flatlands Ave - Rockaway Parkway - East 98 St

no actual markings here. people drive relatively slowly but there is nothing actually indicating this is a bike lane, allowing typically angry and aggressive drivers to do whatever they feel like.

East New York Ave - Buffalo Ave - Buffalo Ave

this bike lane is pure shit. its mostly filled with debris - where people aren't double or triple parked in it. people SPEED LIKE HELL down rockaway and then veer in and out. its just so bad, i can't believe you even painted this and probably patted yourselves on the back thinking this is a bike lane.

Flatbush Ave - Clarendon Rd - Dorchester Rd

Claredon Road bike lane ending without connecting across Flatbush is illogical and unhelpful. Use wayfinding, surface road treatments and more to continue on and across Flatbush over to Dorchester road to Coney Island Avenue please.

East New York Ave - Rockaway Parkway - East 98 St

Rockaway parkway has a bike lane but it's mere paint and routinely double parked in. Need an upgrade to a protected lane.

Park Circle - Coney Island Ave - Parkside Ave

Coney Island Avenue is designed for trucks, not for people. It's too wide and cars are too fast. Give it an overhaul from Prospect Park as far south as possible and add protected bike lanes please.

Ocean Ave - East Lake Drive - East Drive

The Ocean Avenue bike lane is not safe. There is RAMPANT double parking & illegal u turns. Either make a grassy mall throughout or add protected bike lane in a center running Sands St style clip.

Troy Ave - Hawthorne St - Winthrop St

Troy Avenue is really wide. At times it even has a striped buffer on BOTH side of the street. The room is there for a bike lane no doubt. Probably even a protected one!

Pitkin Ave - Junius St - Van Sinderen Ave

To head west... Pitkin to East NY Ave to Lincoln Road is a straight shot. But the bike lane is non existent for way too much of it. and knowing this line exists, I could see a linear park treatment being done with a conversion to a two way bike path in & out of Prospect Park and linking all the way to Lincoln Terrace Park (and beyond with some northern routes to Highland Park). It'd require losing a lot of free on street parking, but if we're building for Brooklyn's future... we need to truly prioritize peds & bikes and give them the room to grow heartily.

Lefferts Ave - Washington Ave - Bedford Ave

Lefferts Avenue is dangerously wide. It could use a bike lane (or even a marked parking lane) just for traffic calming. But big picture, the neighborhood could also benefit from some linear park treatments. Maybe Lefferts has the width to build it with ease? It'd also end the string of illegal U Turns that always happens here.

Ocean Ave - East Lake Drive - East Drive

Prospect Park has all the cyclists but no actual bike path into it, or out from it, on Lincoln Road. For all points east, the best way (until Ocean gets its parkside path) would be to turn left on Flatbush or Washington & then turn right onto Empire. But the Empire lane is riddled with double parking... and it's just paint. Empire will likely get rezoned and soon have more buildings and residents. But we shouldn't wait for them to come and get hurt. Let's act now. Give Empire's faded bike lanes an upgrade and maybe build a median of grass like 34th avenue? It could become a GRAND entrance to Prospect Park.

Kings Highway - Avenue J - Connector

Kings Highway deserves a redo. Make it a people first corridor with protected bike lanes north to south that unites communities and connects with existing - and planned - east west bike lanes in Central Brooklyn.

Ralph Ave - Eastern Parkway - Eastern Parkway

There NEEDS to be a protected bike lane connector from the end of the Eastern Parkway path to the Pitkin Avenue route just one block away. Then the intersection of Pitkin, Howard, & East NY Avenue needs a big overhaul for all vulnerable road users. The paint & plastic treatment if got in 2020 was woefully inadequate. And if we're gonna be serious about biking and climate change, the Pitkin strip out to be remade with protected lanes that continue the safety of Eastern Parkway.

Linden Boulevard - East 49 St - Utica Ave

Linden Blvd is TOOOOO wide and totally dedicated to cars. Use the service lanes & give it a Queens Blvd style makeover. It'd be an amazing bike connector for central & East Brooklyn & would also enhance safety for all pedestrians attempting to cross that insane highway that cuts thru neighborhoods.

Washington Ave - Sullivan Pl - Empire Boulevard

Add a fully protected multi-directional bike lane on both sides of Flatbush Avenue providing a safe way for people to travel along the length of it without relying on cars. Especially giving access to those who live beyond the reach of the subways and providing options to get to the shops along Flatbush, Brooklyn College, Brooklyn Junction and extend the lanes to Aviation Rd, setting up a way to reach the beach/recreation without having to rely on a car. Will also serve to traffic calm Flatbush Avenue which sees speeding as well as double parking.

New York Ave - Avenue H - Glenwood Rd - Brooklyn

New York Avenue from Avenue H north would be a great route to reduce aggressive vehicle traffic and better facilitate CB 17 bike movement south/north to/from Flatbush junction and the Target, etc., which is a major community commercial hub.

New York Ave - Clarkson Ave - Lenox Rd

There is no safe way whatsover to get from Bedford, on the South corner of the park, over to the park. The drivers are aggressive, and there is no protected routes to and from. We need protected bike lanes on Clarkson, all the way over to Ocean, and on Parkside, from the park over to Bedford at least. Protected lanes, not shared, not normal lanes. The drivers are VERY fast and endanger the cyclists.

CB17's city grid has some challenging features that interrupt many of its main thoroughfares. Because of this, it seems essential to capitalize on bike lanes oriented north-south wherever possible.

Beverly road in CB17 is definitely wide enough to accommodate two directions of bike lanes. It could connect to the existing bike lanes on Beverley in CB14.

East Drive - South Lake Drive - Ocean Ave

There needs to be a better way for the residents CB17 to access Prospect Park!! there's no uninterrupted two-way route that would do this, except Linden/Caton/Ocean. A possible solution would be to do an east-bound lane on Parkside ave, and a west-bound lane on Woodruff/Clarkson.

This could be an alternative route for access to the park/flatbush bike lane, but Empire is notoriously dangerous here (would have plenty of space for a protected lane, however.)

Flatbush Ave - East Drive - Empire Boulevard

Would be great to get a bike route connection between the lanes in PLG to the new protected bike lane on Flatbush (between GAP and Empire). At the moment it's difficult and confusing to navigate the small but very busy stretch around Empire.

Bedford Ave - Linden Boulevard - Martense St

An ideal goal would be to figure out how to connect a potential bike lane on Linden Blvd (and the existing ones on Bedford Ave) to the bike lanes accessing the park on Ocean Ave. The section of Caton in between Ocean and Bedford would be the ideal place for it, but the street narrows out significantly between Ocean and Flatbush. Perhaps, for that short segment only, a lane of parking could be eliminated to create a protected bike lane--it would be essential because extremely heavy and dangerous 18-wheeler trucks use this route every day as well.

A bike route along New York avenue would help give alternatives to the residents of CB17, and also connect to existing lanes on Clarendon Rd, Lincoln, and Maple Ave.

Bike lanes on Snyder ave that ultimately connect to the existing network on Bedford ave would also provide essential usefulness of the bike network! East of Brooklyn ave, along the cemetery, a lane of parking could be eliminated to make space for a protected bike lane.

Linden Boulevard - Caton Ave - Rogers Ave

Protected bike lines (both ways) could easily be inserted in between parking lanes and the sidewalk on Linden Blvd. The street is definitely wide enough. This would provide vital easier access to Prospect Park from a large swath of East Flatbush.

Cycling Route Zoom Out Icon
Cycling Routes
Linden Boulevard - East 49 St - Utica Ave

A protected bike lane should be made down Linden Blvd towards Flatbush Avenue coming from Utica Avenue. This would improve connectivity of bikeways. Additionally, Linden is currently misusing space since where the bikes ride is the worst maintained part of the streets so neither cars or bikes are using it right now. This is valuable space that could be easily reimagined with the a protected bike lane between the sidewalk and street car parking.
