Coast with Kids Through Ditmas Park
If you have yet to experience the Victorian-lined streets of Ditmas Park, let these dedicated locals give you the grand tour by bike. Every Friday, the group meets up at the Egyptian coffee shop Qathra for a leisurely, play-it-by-ear evening ride. The tradition was started by neighborhood parents teaching their kids to ride their bikes, but has expanded to include residents and Ditmas-curious visitors of all ages. Invited guests often stop by to show off specialty bikes, like the cargo-ready Bullit or elegant Pendersen.
Fridays at 7pm, free.

The purpose of the Ditmas Rides is for us to have fun and to celebrate and spread a way of getting around we already enjoy. There is no planned route and we the participants will decide where we would like to go shortly before the ride starts. Ditmas Park has a lot of small streets so hopefully we can have a joyful and stress free rides. I myself are planning to bring my daughter Nona Lily along and hope that other parents will bring their children as well.
I am really looking forward to seeing everyone soon. Thanks, Rene

Here some photos from our frist "Ditmas Rides" ride
The fist Ditmas Ride happened on a Friday May 14th 2010. Ditmas Ride came out of a series of bike rides I organized the year before which was called "kids on bikes". Its purpose was to help people find way to get around with their kids on a bike. As a result we try to keep the Ditmas Ride as kid friendly as possible and still try to introduce people to ways how they can transport their kids on a bike. There for the Ditmas Ride is no way a competitive ride rather then a leisurely ride which would like to facilitate meeting other bicyclist and enjoying each other company. We welcome all kinds of riders. Especially new once. If you'd like to offer a ride at a different time of the day or on a different day. Please let us know. We will be happy to pass out the word.
