Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer was spotted crashing a Memorial Day party in Brooklyn, stopping by the gathering after riding by on his bicycle.

Rocking a black helmet and corded Apple headphones, Schumer (D-NY) could be seen pulling over his dark green Bianchi bike on the curb before joining the festivities.

The top Senate Democrat, who appeared to keep his helmet and earphones on the entire time, wore a green varsity sweatshirt with a red polo underneath, khaki shorts and white New Balance sneakers with white socks on the outing, according to video taken by party guest Mario Nicholas Torres and obtained by The Post.

While at the party, which took place Sunday in Bedford-Stuyvesant, Schumer sipped on a can of what appeared to be a generic version of La Croix, the sparkling water brand.

He also grabbed a plate of food.

“I love riding my bike all over Brooklyn, but I’m not a spandex guy going at 40 mph. I ride slowly, stop and talk to people and learn things,” the majority leader told The Post of his time at the party.

Schumer, a Park Slope resident who splits his time between Brooklyn and Washington, DC, is known for being a familiar face around the five boroughs.

Just last Saturday, he joined a band performing in his neighborhood to sing the Frank Sinatra classic “New York, New York” and Billy Joel’s “Piano Man.”

The Gotham pol didn’t exactly have Sinatra-level presence when he took his musical star turn, but at least he was mostly on key.

The next day, after footage of the impromptu gig began circulating online, Schumer took to Twitter to reveal that he had run into the same band — this time in Prospect Park.

“[L]ook who I just ran into in Prospect Park: The same band I was singing with last night!” the 70-year-old lawmaker wrote.

After then-candidate Joe Biden was declared the winner of the 2020 presidential race, Schumer took to the elated streets of New York, where the predominantly liberal populace cheered over the results.

The senator said afterward he had been in five locations in Brooklyn and Manhattan to witness New Yorkers celebrate Biden’s win.

At one point, he was spotted walking through a large crowd in Times Square holding a Biden-Harris sign. At another, he danced with the crowds while holding up that same sign at Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn.
