Explanation:

[STC00146] The borough of Brooklyn in New York City has a long history of having a thriving riding community.

In fact, on June 15, 1894, the first pike bath in the country opened on Ocean Parkway in Brooklyn.

On the first day of operation, there were around 10,000 bicycles on the path, which had a speed restriction of 12 miles per hour.

The five-mile drive was originally conceived of and designed by Calvert Vaux and Frederick Law Olmsted, the men most credited with the creation of Central Park.

Running north and south through Kensington in Brooklyn, Ocean Parkway was modeled after Avenue Foch in Paris and was originally intended to be one of four spokes spanning across Brooklyn from Prospect Park.

Both the parkway and its adjacent bike lane have been extended such that they now reach Coney Island Beach.
