New York City has more great sights per mile than arguably anywhere else in the world, so why not make the absolute most of a 2-hour window and fill it with a bike adventure
Come explore lower Manhattan on two wheels; this 2-hour tour takes you up in the air above New York City! We cycle around Manhattan’s southern tip, climb into the City Hall area, then up onto the Brooklyn Bridge itself. This will be a steady climb of about 15 minutes, stopping at the Brooklyn-side tower of the bridge for photos. You’ll be about 160 feet (about 50 meters) up. The entire New York Harbor will be visible, including the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, Staten Island, the port of Brooklyn, and several miles of the New Jersey coastline. We will descend into Brooklyn, seeing NYC’s Financial District from across the river, followed by historic houses of Brooklyn Heights. Then we return over the bridge, to South Street Seaport. Remember to bring your camera: there will be spectacular views in all directions from the top of the Brooklyn Bridge.
You will bike just under seven miles and this moderately paced tour is perfect for riders of any skill level.
