Brompton New York Code of Conduct

In order to have a safe and fun group, we request that all of our community members follow some basic rules to ensure that everyone has a great time.

• We welcome any kind of bike and any type of rider in our group. However, some rides may be better suited to specific types of bikes and riders. If you’re not sure if a ride is right for you or your bike, just ask! We’re happy to help.

• No one gets left behind! We wait for all riders and finish the ride together.

• We do not encourage drinking alcohol and riding. However, if drinking and riding are taking place at the same event, we are responsible and arrange for appropriate transportation.

• Helmets are recommended to all riders.

• We are honest about our ability to participate. We only commit to events we plan to attend.

• We do not use this platform to sell anything. This group is purely for social purposes.

Prospect Park Moonlight Ride

Grand Army Plaza

Every fourth Saturday!

***Special for October: We'll do a bonus loop around the park with a short detour to visit a nearby home with excellent Halloween decor.***

Let's get a Brompton contingent to join the Prospect Park Moonlight Ride hosted by NYC Times Up. Discover Prospect Park at night with a Peaceful
ride that visits the park’s little-known treasures. Bicycle lights recommended.

We'll meet at the Grand Army Plaza entrance to
Prospect Park at 7:15pm and join the other bikers for this beautiful evening ride. The official ride starts at 7:30pm.

A bit more about this event:
This ride is hosted by the Time's Up environmental group and is open to all bicycles. Our meetup provides a contact point for Bromptons to find each other and form a Brompton contingent within the other bikes that join this ride.

This is a slow, casual, peaceful ride in the moonlight. Bromptons are free to stick together, or break out in smaller groups within the other bicycles that join. You will be riding in the dark, close to other bicycles, so make sure your lamps are charged and tires full.

Here's a link to the Time's Up site where you can read about the good work they do to promote urban cycling, community gardens, and environmental education: times-up.org/rides/moonlight-ride-prospect-park
