Owner description: Get Up & Ride organizes fun and engaging bicycle tours through Brooklyn's most charming and unique waterfront neighborhoods. The tours start at McCarren Park on the corner of North 12th and Bedford Ave and make their way through Greenpoint, Williamsburg, Downtown Brooklyn, Brooklyn Heights and DUMBO. Making frequent stops along the way our tours showcase local art, beautiful parks, interesting history and great food. We make stops at places like the Brooklyn Navy Yard, The Dekalb Market and the Promenade and conclude with a ferry ride on the East River back to Williamsburg. Our tours include a bike rental and unlike traditional bike tour/rental companies, Get Up & Ride's bicycles were chosen with comfort in mind. The Dutch-style urban bicycles are beautifully designed, lightweight and reliable. Join us on our next great tour and see why Brooklyn is quickly becoming NYC's most popular borough!!neighborhoods.

We loved the Classic Bike Tour of Brooklyn. You ride through some varied neighbourhoods and get history, commentary and comments from the guide as you go. James was our guide and he had an engaging, laid back style that was still full of enthusiasm for the area that he knows well. He answered all our questions and we have been... More

Me and my husband took the Classic Brooklyn tour september 18th. Felipe was our tourguide. In our 5 day stay in New York this was our favourite thing to do. We were in a group of ten and I loved having the walky talky in my ear and Felipe constantly telling us interesting things about the neighbourhood we were riding... More

My husband and I both agree that this tour was one of the big highlights of our two week stay in New York. We got to see so much more of Brooklyn than we would have trying to catch trains and walking everywhere plus we also learned so much about each area because of Felipe's extensive knowledge. A must do... More

My wife an I did this tour and it was just sensational. Felipes local knowledge was just astounding and the sites he took us too were great as were the interludes. An easy ride for a granny if need be and at a pace that you could easily absorb the sites and commentary as we pedalled. Highly recommended and absolute... More

Awesome! Being a native New Yorker and out of the city for 8 years, I planned a "me" weekend. I went to Broadway shows, museums, shopping, etc. but the highlight of my trip was "Get up and Ride". It was so fun and I learned so much about a borough I never knew. PS-"It's Only a Play" was fantastic!

We had an amazing tour of Brooklyn on Felipe's bikes. Felipe was friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable about the Brooklyn area. He also knew where to get great coffee and delicious pizza for lunch. The rooftop garden was the highlight for me, but the whole day was packed with interesting places, people and sights.Thanks Felipe.

I did a bit of planning around this event. 4 of us were looking to do a bike tour while we were in New York. It cost us just $2-50 each on the subway to get to Brooklyn and the designated meeting point was easy to find. We spent the next few hours being shown all around Brooklyn by our... More

Thank you James for spending the afternoon with us. We loved the commentary over the head sets while riding through Brooklyn and then the fun and informative chats on street corners near the beautiful and inspiring street art. I can't think of a better way for us to explore Brooklyn! The tour is well thought out and organized. We felt... More
