Howdy y’all. It’s the duo from the lifestyle blog, This Is The Place I Was Telling You About. We’ve partnered with our friends over at Brooklyn Bike Co to share our day date to Prospect Park. With all the rain that’s been going on lately, we were ecstatic when the sun finally came out. So we packed our backpack, grabbed our bikes and decide to make the trip from Bushwick to Prospect Park. 

The Soldier and Sailors Memorial Arch at the main entrance of the park always catches our eye. We find the architecture especially beautiful. 

While the foliage was no longer at its peak, the leaves on the ground definitely added to the autumn vibes. Fall is our favorite seasons so the longer we get to bask in it the better. 

It was a brisk day, so when we weren’t biking things got a bit chilly. It made for the perfect reason to warm up with hot cider and donuts. We laid down a blanket, read a little bit, and did some people watching. 

On our way home, we stopped at a local farmers market to pick up some fresh produce for dinner that evening. We came across a Chinese dumpling vendor and ordered half a dozen pork dumplings to eat while we walked around. The dumplings aren’t pictured because they were devoured in seconds. They were delicious!

City Bike Helmet by Thousand
Frances (Belmont, US)
Scooter Perfect

I bought this for my scooter-loving boyfriend. The look and function is PERFECT for scooter use. The snap allows quick-on-off for the urban transit connections and zipping to meetings in the city. The brim is just enough to prevent glare while still keeping the helmet compact for errands and trips to the grocery store. And did I mention that he LOVES the look of it? He said it distinguishes him from the bike crowd in a very smart way.....Still kicking it at 60!

Thanks so much for sharing Frances. We're glad you're finding many uses for the helmet. -Ryan Zagata

Nantucket Lightship Basket

Love it!

The perfect size and just what I was looking for. The shape of this basket stores my things securely and has a lot of room inside.

Thanks for sharing Lindsay. We're big fans of Nantucket Baskets as well. -Ryan Zagata

Bedford 8 Speed
Raphael Roos (Spicer, US)
Ride in style

In a sea of boring bikes, I found Brooklyn bike, and I couldn’t be more happier with my Bedford. The city ride is so smooth, and can’t help but notice the heads turning when I ride by :)

Thanks so much for sharing Raphael. We're thrilled you're enjoying your Bedford. -Ryan Zagata

Swept Back Handlebars
Blake Hebold (Falmouth, US)
Great Handlebars!

As a young bike mechanic I don’t have preferred bike component retailers. But these are perfect bars for cruiser vibe bikes. Everything (grips, brake levers etc) fit according to measurements. Great product, highly recommend it!

Thanks so much for the kind words and acknowledgment Blake. -Ryan Zagata
