Overview
Immerse yourself in Brooklyn’s one-of-a-kind ambiance, and get an overview of its destination-worthy neighborhoods, on a small-group bicycle tour of the borough. Choose among several departure times, and meet your guide in DUMBO—right below the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges. Once you’ve put on your helmet and received your hybrid bicycle, explore the Brooklyn Navy Yard and Williamsburg, see Fort Greene Park and Prospect Park, explore Carroll Gardens and Cobble Hill, and pause for refreshments at local, artisanal eateries.
What to Expect
See the neighborhoods which make up Brooklyn!

This tour starts in Dumbo, Brooklyn, under the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges on beautiful waterfront with sweeping views of downtown Manhattan from across the East River.

We pedal on comfortable, lightweight, high quality, hybrid bicycles; provided to you by your guide.

From Dumbo, we visit the historic and newly redeveloped Brooklyn Navy Yard, heading into the South Part of Williamsburg – a neighborhood of artists, graffiti, and some of the coolest Bars, Coffee Shops, and Breweries in NYC.

We head to Fort Green Park, North of Bustling Downtown Brooklyn- the landscape changes dramatically and one gets a view of the amazing diversity of Brooklyn! We pass by Barclay’s Center and Historically Preserved Government Buildings.

The next stop is Prospect Park’s Grand Army Plaza with views of the Park’s Arch and the Brooklyn Public Library.

We explore Carrol Garden & Red Hook with Stops at Breweries, Distilleries & Chocolate Makers... just to name a few! We want you to see how industrious Brooklyn can be and introduce you to some of the locals!

Into Cobble Hill and Red Hook with Brownstone Lined Streets, Small Family Owned Restaurants, and reminders of a shipping industry long gone!

Next stop? Brooklyn Heights! With its’ tree lined blocks and diversity in architecture, this calm and serene part of the ride introduces you the very first historically preserved neighborhood in the United States.

Back through Dumbo and Brooklyn Bridge Park ends one of the most complete tours of Brooklyn you’ll find. Grab a post ride snack and enjoy the park! We’ll put away the bikes, make suggestions about our city, and hope you’ll be back riding with us soon!

Very personal and friendly experience

My husband, daughter and I had a great tour from Brian who was very informative and passionate about Brooklyn's history. A great way to keep fit and see sights you wouldn't know existed on the typical tourist trail. Highly recommend it.

Great way to see parts of Brooklyn!

We thoroughly enjoyed the three-hour bike tour around Brooklyn. The pace was leisurely—just right for us—and we got to ride through parts of Brooklyn we would not have seen otherwise. Our guide James was very friendly, informative and responsive. A wonderful experience!

Informative tour!! Had fun!!

Unfortunately the tour couldnt start at the booked time. But we were informed 3hrs prior. B/c of lack of time and opportunities on the same day, we still did it. We had the 20 miles tour with John. He recommended the 20 miles are better...More

Glad you took the longer tour despite the timing. Organizing soooo many tours that we do as we’ve grown in popularity can be tricky. But we always go out. And per the 20 mile ride- you should feel awesome! Thank you for your awesome review.

Yes, that was a crazy trip... I remember the rain lasted for a brief, pounding couple of minutes - enough to soak us... then the sun came out! I guess that's what happens, but we had a blast. Thank you for your review.

Hi it depends on which tour you want to do. The Brooklyn all day is 30 miles over 5 hours. There’s a 3 hour which is 15 miles. That Route has a few very small elevations but you have a 21 gear bike so you can use a low gear... More
