Official Bike Rental Provider to Brooklyn Greenway’s Epic Ride (2015, 2016 & 2017)

As an Executive Management consultant for BIKE RENT NYC, I created the professional relationship with the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative to have our business become the Official Bike Rental Provider in 2015. 

Representing BIKE RENT NYC as the organizer and manager for the event, our team provided more than 100 bicycles annually. The relationship and service continued throughout the 2016 and 2017 Epic Rides. 

Riders were able to pick-up bicycles at the Greenpoint Brooklyn start line, and, return the bikes after use at the finish line at RIIS Park. 

Bike rental for the event is purchased on the Brooklyn Greenway Initiative’s Epic Ride website.
Bikes are staged at the starting location in the early morning, and before the start of the ride.
Before bicycle and helmet distribution bikes begins, the bike ar checked for safety, and seats and helmets were adjusted for each individual. 

Additionally, extra bikes in varying sizes are made available in case of need or repaIR.
