Itinerary

Beginning on the Lower East Side of Manhattan—once the most densely populated neighborhood in the world, now a very hip area with a thriving nightlife and plenty of quirks—iwe delve into Brooklyn. In the high-end Bohemian neighborhood of Williamsburg, we visit one of the Big Apple's truly underground microbreweries (where riders 21 and older can sample craft beers on tap).
Only a short ride away, yet seemingly centuries back in time, is a Hassidic "shtetl," where the orthodox Jewish population still tries to live as it did before the Holocaust. On Saturday, the Jewish Sabbath, all businesses are closed as the synagogue becomes the focal point of existence.
As if traveling through time, we pass by the Brooklyn Navy Yard, site of nearly 200 years of ship building history and the birthplace of scores of famous ships, from the Fulton Steam Frigate to the USS Maine!
We complete our return to the 21st century as we ride to the now-posh neighborhood of Dumbo and, finally, pedal over the Brooklyn Bridge to take in incredible views of the New York skyline and harbor.
