Trip Info

100 years of baseball in 10 miles and 3 hours of biking! Whether you’re from Brooklyn or not you’ve probably heard about the great local ballclubs of the 1950s. The Yankees, Dodgers, and Giants battled in New York to rule the major leagues. In fact, 14 of the 20 pennants from the 50′s belonged to a NYC team. But there’s so much more! Brooklyn alone holds an unprecedented place in baseball history. Far beyond Jackie Robinson and the color barrier, the quirks of Ebbets Field, or the meteoric rise of Brooklyn’s own Sandy Koufax lies the unbelievable roots of our nation’s pastime. On the tour we roll back in time into the mid-1800s and gentleman club “base ball” and explore into the modern era and the exodus of the Dodgers in 1957… all this while rolling along one of the finest circuits of urban bike paths in the country.
