Owner description: 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.

“Great way to visit and see Brooklyn”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Living in Queens for many years and having taking countless interesting walking tours al over the city, I thought I try a different way and was glad I did. "Get Up and Ride Bike Tours" is just great, the bikes and equipment are excellent, our incredibly charming and lively young tour guide, Catalina, was a fountain of interesting and entertaining information. The tour is inspiring – makes you want to come back to Brooklyn real soon and discover it even more. I loved it. It is definitely worth your time and money. Highly recommended!

“Best thing to experience Brooklyn”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

Me and my daughter did this trip on june 6th and the weather was just fine. We have seen all the highlights with the marvellous comments from our guide Felippe. With the earbugs it was easy to follow. Good bikes! And good stops!
We come from The Netherlands and we are used to biking.... And this was fun. You can do this with an average condition. Our guide knew a lot about this area and can tell about it in a very interessting way and with humor.

“Great Introduction to the Brooklyn Waterfront Areas”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

High on the list of absolute musts in New York is a bike ride, preferably in Brooklyn. You could rent a bike of course and discover the area on your own, but it’s worth signing up for a guided tour. And if you do, you may just want to bike with the best: Get Up and Ride. I was fortunate to have the creator of the bike tour run the show. Felipe Lavalle immediately got my attention by talking non stop about all kinds of topics ranging from historical stuff to cool hangouts adding social commentary, personal stories and flavoring it all with a good sense of humor. He also stopped at several spots that you just know you’d not have found easily on your own, which gives the whole tour an extra value. All in all, it’s a great tour that will leave everyone satisfied. Definitely worth booking!

“this is how it should be”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

We've done some touring , by bus , car and other modes , and biking offered a totally different and enjoyable experience . Our guide , Felipe ,combined history with humor with his anecdotes . You can tell that the routes were well planned and stops very well timed . The group had a wide range in age , the oldest at 71 and the youngest at 21 , and Felipe was able to relate to them all. Biking skills were also different for each one , and Felipe was able to maintain a pace that encouraged the novices and kept the better bikers interested .

“The Best Way to See Brooklyn”
Reviewed June 4, 2013

We've gone to NYC dozens of time but never spent any time in Brooklyn. We're old guys (71 and 69) who have done lots of biking so we decided to give it a try. We were very impressed. The bikes were excellent and the tour was fascinating, taking us through most of the sections of the most populous borough of NY. It was flat and easy. We were all given walkie-talkies so were able to hear our owner-guide tell us about what we were seeing. We stopped for lunch at a place called Best Pizza - maybe not the Best, but good enough. The visit was a bit pricey at $85, but what isn't pricey in New York. We loved it.
