BROOKLYN - As more than 30,000 cyclists prepared for their 42-mile bike ride Sunday, some came out to the Brooklyn Bridge for Bike Fest.

As part of the event, workshops were held to educate riders on bike safety, laws and bike repair.

Many of those in attendance said they were just excited to get on their bikes and take on the 42-mile course.

There were a number of street closures across all the boroughs for the ride.
