Looking for a bike ride March 26-31

Hi.

I will be staying in Brooklyn March 26-31. I would love to find some people to ride with. It should be getting a bit warmer then. Can we do a twilight ride that ends at a bar? Because sunsets are pretty and those are the best rides. That's how we do it in Detroit : ) I would need to find a bike to borrow though. Who's in?

I get back from Florida on the 28th, I could be down for a ride when I get back.

Not 100% sure I'd have a bike for you to borrow though :/

That sounds great!!
I just arrived in Brooklyn and am going to be here a couple of months.. unfortunately i dont have a bike either.. looking to get one asap.
Maybe I could borrow one.. when theres a will theres a way. Ive found a few great bars that could be pitstops on the rides :)
Lets organise something

I'm biking on Saturday from Manhattan to and throughout Brooklyn. Usually I pick up a friend or two along the way and we always end in Williamsburg at one of hip bars there, usually Radegast. If you all are interested in meeting somewhere in Brooklyn, give me a shout.

Craigslist. Lots of decent used bikes for good prices. Plus you can haggle people down. That's where I got my Trek.

Though it's not relevant now, at the end of the summer the rental places will unload their rental bikes for cheap., $100 - $150 usually. A little fine tuning at a shop can lead to some great deals.
