After many visits to Manhattan we wanted to check out Brooklyn. Having taken bike tours throughout Europe we knew that there is no better way to see a community. Felipe didn't disappoint. The tour was well-paced and provided a great overview of a diverse and fascinating part of NYC. Brooklyn really lends itself to touring by bike. The use of... More

What a fantastic way to see Brooklyn. The tour was well organized and professional Our guide James had an exemplary knowledge of the area and his radio commentary is filled with historical tid bits and an obvious excitement about the new developments to the city. The group was a good size and we met some great people from around the... More

Two of us did this ride on a warm, mostly sunny day and had a great time. Felipe is a natural at his work. He is upbeat and has taken the time to learn all about Brooklyn. We visited a few notable sites, including the Brooklyn Grange, which operates a couple of rooftop "farms." We got to know Williamsburg, Dumbo,... More

I was so excited when Felippe has opened the door of the garage where he stores his bikes - he was promptly able to tell by my facial expression! :) If you want to get out of Manhattan to explore Brooklyn, this is the fastest and best way to do so. Everything was great. If you are in NYC you... More

This was one of the most fun experiences ever! We saw so much of Brooklyn guided by Philipe. He was so sweet, informational, & energetic. I absolutely loved visiting the Navy Yard, especially the Brooklyn Grange Farm. We had super yummy pizza at Best Pizza. We passed by Gleason's gym and Truman Capote's house. It was great to have the... More

Our time with Nick, our guide, was terrific. Our group of eight included a variety of ages from teens to 70's. We saw a side of Brooklyn which would would have missed if we hadn't done this tour. Sunday was a good choice to ride along the streets. The bike path along the water gave us a great view of... More

I recently went on the Get Up And Ride tour called, "The Classic Bike Tour of Brooklyn". I was referred to the Get Up And Ride company by a friend who had gone on "The Bikeable Feast" tour, and loved it. As I wanted to explore more of the neighborhoods of Brooklyn, I thought the classic tour would be the... More

6 of us joined 4 others for a perfect Father's Day Sunday ride through Greenpoint and Williamsburg. Our guide was Lisa, who was totally adorable, taking very good care of us and giving us lots of wonderful information about the streets we rode. The places we stopped for all delightful and the food very good. We especially enjoyed the bakery... More

I went with a friend today on the brunch bike tour. We are both New Yorkers and this tour was a great opportunity to see Brooklyn up close. Our tour guide Lisa was entertaining, knowledgable and super sweet. Would recommend to anyone.

Good balance of activity and rest - great pizza and coffee. Great way to spend the day. Our guide nick was very good - chilled,... More
