Bed-Stuy Create & Connect Fund Recipient
The inaugural edition of the Fred Jones Memorial Bicycle Ride (FJMR) on Sunday, August 29, 2021, is being presented in memory of the late Manifred Jones, to celebrate his life and service to the cycling and Bedford-Stuyvesant communities. Additionally, we pay our respects to all our neighbors we lost to COVID-19. This free 35-mile bike ride, inspired by the late Fred Jones personal training rides, takes cyclists through Brooklyn and Queens mostly following bike lanes, greenways and bike friendly streets. We invite everyone everywhere to help us celebrate our city’s reopening with a fun day of movement and re-engagement with our communities.
