Full description
Pedal off from the famous Dumbo area under the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridge, and get sweeping views of Lower Manhattan across the East River. Continue to the redeveloped Brooklyn Navy Yard, and then head into the southern part of bohemian Williamsburg. Cycle to Fort Green Park and pass the preserved government buildings. Get stunning views of the Soldiers and Sailors Arch and Brooklyn Public Library from Grand Army Plaza. Then, experience the cycling paradise of Prospect Park before you ride into Red Hook for a quick snack and drink.  Hear how the area went from being the busiest port in the world to a place of crime, before artists moved in to the brick warehouses and brownstone houses. See local landmarks such as Steve's Key Lime Pies and Widow Jane Distillery, and grab some snacks along the way. End with a visit to affluent Brooklyn Heights, the first preserved historic neighborhood in the United States.

Fun to discover a city by bike, you see so much more!

Fun to see Brooklyn in a new way! The tour also included many interesting stops. A small brewery, one of the few places where key lime pie is produced, a small chocolate factory in a nice warehouse and a whiskey distillery. The guide had a VR camera and filmed much of the tour, the tech enthusiasts were lyrical. The tour also contained interesting history of Brooklyn!
