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.

Experience Brooklyn like a local on a cycling tour through the borough’s hippest neighborhoods, including tough-to-reach areas that visitors often miss. Avoid the stress of navigating on our own as you follow a guide to popular landmarks and hidden gems, including breweries and eateries to rest and refuel. Photo stops and complimentary tastings along the way make this a popular choice for active New York visitors.

Thank you so much. Brian is a wealth of knowledge for sure. We usually tease him, because he can get carried away with his talking about NYC. (He is also a stand up comic.)

No, NYC currently does not require that cyclist wear helmets. We do suggest them and have them available if you want one!
