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.

It's is a really great way of experiencing Brooklyn if you've never been before. Especially if you've had enough of walking everywhere after a few days. We did the Brunch in Brooklyn tour and it was really nice to make little stops sampling some independent local coffee shops etc in Brooklyn. Our tour guide,Catalina, was great and very informative.

This was an amazing way to experience the city, both as a tourist and a local. Our guide, James, was incredibly engaging and informative. The provided bikes were really comfortable and easy to ride. It's a great way to get an insider's perspective of the area. A great introduction to Brooklyn for natives and travelers alike.

We had a great time touring Brooklyn on a bike. Mostly because Felipe, our tour guide, knows a lot about Brooklyn history, which he shared via two way radios while we were riding. He took us to the most beautiful sites, with great views of Manhattan and Brooklyn. What I liked most was that it's not your typical tour, Felipe... More

I took the classic tour with Felipe on a Monday and it was an awesome experience. I've lived in NYC for over 4 years and didn't never knew Brooklyn had this much to offer. The guide very informative and attentive to the group. The stops were great with some great views of the city's skyline. I would recommend this tour... More

I went on the Sunday Brunch Tour last week, and it was a ton of fun. A small group of folks, with walkie-talkies, getting to see the highlights of Greenpoint and Williamsburg with stops at some fun places to eat. Sunday morning was actually a great time to do this since little traffic and very serene. The bikes were easy... More
