FBF Status Page

Check here for the race status

The concept for this page is simple, we will let you know whether the race will be happening. Charlie will text us if the status changes, and then we will post the change on this page in the comments section. This should go without saying but, DO NOT TRUST A POSTING FROM ANYONE EXCEPT A SIGNED IN MEMBER OF THE NYVC STAFF, i.e. myself, Andy, Aaron or Alex. FBF is a blood sport and I’m sure that some teams would even stoop to trickery in order to keep their competition at home, so check the log in names.




Feel free to contribute a more accurate phrase, unlike say, just making a jerky comment.

Hello All –
Any help with the following would be greatly appreciated:

From midtown Manhattan on the east side, what’s the best driving route to FBF for someone who can’t skip out of work until 5:00-5:30pm?

Baldo Ziptie

FDR South – Battery Prrk Tunnel – under the Verazzano and keep going. Traffic will be nasty any which way.


I do battery park tunnel also, you get on the belt and pray that the traffic is sparse.

Larry Hanger

12:22, leaving midtown by 5:15-5:30 is more than enough time to bike there. Why drive?

brian g

and ride out, greenway to Bklyn Bridge to Flathbush to Race Domination…Reverse and repeat….

Yanis Torque

If I coming from Philadelphia, PA, should I take I-95 or the GSP? When should I leave?

Robbe Brakepad

Is there a Twitter page for Charlie or Kissena or the FBF series that he posts status?

brian g

at about 4:45 and that gives me plenty of time to cross two bodies of water, navigate the streets of lower Manhattan and take my life into my hands on Flatbush Ave.

If anyone sees a smushed Kingpin rider that’ll be me.

lorenzo rivnut

I agree, why drive? Thanks to the traffic on the Belt, you can get there just as fast, if not faster, by biking. Brian, you need not take your life into your hands on Flatbush. There are ways around Flatbush. I’ll try to dig up the directions for you.

Thunder in Brooklyn! Charlie has bad weather luck. Time to sacrifice a Cat 5. in a volcano!!!!

Florian Compliant

Go right on Ocean Avenue after you come down Flatbush between P Park and the Botanic Garden. Go way down Ocean, then left on Avenues S, R or T to Gerritsen. Right on Gerritsen to Ave. U. Left on U takes you back to Flatbush at King’s Plaza. If you look at a map there are a couple more zigs and zags from U to Flatbush if you want to avoid a couple more blocks of Flatbush.

wish wash

now i really can’t decide what to do. ride the 15 miles there and risk the downpour or skip and risk being pissed if/when nothing happens.

Jacopo Setscrew

be a man, go drinking instead. you’ll feel better, and support the economy to boot. win-win.

Save Your FBF Numbers!!!

I forgot to make the announcemnet last night that you use the SAME NUMBER EVERY WEEK at FBF so save your number from last night! Your number says “Floyd Bennett” on it to make it even easier for you. Using the same number every week makes resgistration go a lot faster for you and us.

Thanks guys!

Mexico! dont bring the peloton!

1J2. It is the rider‟s responsibility to enter a race in the proper class and category [disqualification and 30 day suspension for competing in the wrong class or category]. The fact that the registrars accepted the incorrect entry will not be taken as an excuse
