20 Mile Bike Tour Through East New York, Brownsville and Canarsie To Expand As Purelements Partners with Bike New York

According to New York City’s Department of Transportation Cycling in the City program, approximately 900,000 residents cycle through the boroughs regularly with over 510,000 trips made every day. The creation and expansion of CitiBike rentals, residents looking for alternative fitness ways, and more bike paths made across the boroughs have helped to increase ridership over the last 15 years.

As a competitive cycler, Kevin A. Joseph, Co-Executive Artistic Director for Purelements An Evolution In Dance, saw the sport as “an additional route to connect with the community that was just as accessible as art.” He worked with Purelements to create Bike East, a 20 mile cycling tour that passes through East New York, Brownsville, Canarsie, Seaview and out to Riis Beach then back to Gershwin/Sonny Carson Park.
