We believe the best way to experience a city is on a lightweight and comfortable city bike. We believe riding in smaller groups and at a slower pace creates a more intimate and memorable experience. We believe a friendly local guide will give you the best insider tips and recommendations for authentic, off the beaten path sites AND ... we believe wearing a walkie-talkie and headset keeps you safe and informed during the ride. Don't believe us? Read the reviews and see why we're Brooklyn's #1 rated activity on TripAdvisor.

I took the 5 hour Brooklyn Tour but it sure didn't feel like 5 hours. Chandler was the guide for the 8 participants and was very professional, concerned for our safety as well as provided really great commentary throughout. I learned quite a lot about the various neighborhoods and felt rather immersed in the culture being so up close and... More

We had a great time on this bike tour and highly recommend it. Ask for Noni - she is the best --very knowledgeable, fun and funny, and knew all of the areas really well. We found out a lot of 'inside' information about the different neighborhoods that the other tours do not provide. We were a group of four -... More

Due to crappy weather, our pre-booked tour was cancelled and we couldn't re-book due to leaving town the next day. Through all of the communication to go on this tour, I was extremely impressed with the communication and professionalism from the company. I was also impressed how they were really looking out for us, to ensure we'd have an enjoyable... More

I love bike riding, but have recently developed arthritis. James made this day awesome. The pace was not too strenuous and he made sure we were all together. The tour information was good and we took enough stops to enjoy the view and city.

We cycled around Brooklyn for 6 hours on Friday 8th May in glorious sunshine - seeing all the sights on great bikes , eating great pizza on the way round. Tour guide was brilliant - just knew all his stuff and the Mexican food in the yard before was SO GOOD. Just do it

I chose Get up and Ride because they looked like the most fun and modern bike tour companies in NYC and when you meet the owner you realise the whole thing is a labour of love that seems to be going from strength to strength, so well done guys! There are cheaper tours out there but I recommend paying a... More

These guys came up with a wonderful idea for seeing more of Brooklyn than you could ever see on foot. They are enthusiastic, friendly, and obviously love what they do and even more so, they love Brooklyn! James was our guide, and he had so much information to share with us. The walkie talkies make it all work flawlessly. The... More

We did the 11am-4pm Brooklyn Bike Tour with our guide and 4 more couples, and with the great weather on Friday, May 8th, we had a really great time. Our tour guide, James, took us thru 8 Brooklyn neighborhoods, pointing out interesting sights and sharing interesting facts and folklore. James did an excellent job sheparding our group through the streets... More

Went for the Brooklyn tour with the guide Nick! So much fun! A really awesome way to experience New York and Brooklyn! Great stops for refreshments and views of the Manhattan skyline.
