The September weather has been beautiful for biking and walking; sunny and crisp, humidity pretty well gone now. Zac and I did some cycling on Tuesday in the gorgeous sunshine and into the night; from South Park Slope to Ditmas Park (aqua route to Sycamore), then through Prospect Park (the uphill half!) to Prospect Heights (pink route to Beast), and finally back home down Fifth Ave in the Slope again (green route).
Having been here so long, I know Park Slope very well, and Prospect Heights to an extent, but I’m least familiar with Ditmas Park and its environs. The bikesterNYC app for iphone has been remedying that— it’s really helpful when planning routes through unknown neighborhoods or the stretches between familiar ‘hoods.
