Brooklyn Bridge Bike Tour

Come explorer 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 uphill 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.

1) We decided that we want to do the bike tour. How long in advance we should make a reservation?
A) In order to secure your spot on the bike tour, we recommend making a reservation at least couple of days in advance (a week or more during the summer season). Don’t worry, you can always cancel, postpone, or reschedule your tour if there is a change in plan.
2) We booked our bike tour but the forecast shows rain for that day. What should we do?
A) We are extremely flexible with all of our tours. If you have an availability to take the tour on another day, we will reschedule it, and if not we will issue a 100% refund (yes FULL refund). Unlike other companies, we do not charge cancelation fees, services taxes or any other fees, as long as you inform us at least a 24 hours prior to the tour.

3) We have just completed our reservation and paid for the tour. Where are we going to start the tour from?
A) The bicycle tour will start from our bike store which is located 110 South St (One block from the South Street Seaport) New York, NY 10038.
4) I know how to ride a bike but I haven’t been on one for so long. Do you think I will be able to do it?
A) No worries, the tour moves at a steady pace; this is not a race but a relaxing and enjoyable way to see the bridge. There will also be multiple stops during the tour to catch your breath.
5) I noticed, in the reservation form, that I have to provide a phone number. However, I’m not from the United States and I only have a foreign number. What should I do?
A) Not a problem, you can provide a foreign phone number, just make sure that we can reach you on that number on the day of the tour if there are any changes. We will cover the long-distance phone charges.

6) Where are we going to finish the tour? Can we finish at a different location?
A) All tours start and finish from the same spot. Unfortunately, we cannot finish the tour at a different location because you have to leave the bicycles at our store.
7) We know that we will like the tour and we want to do some biking after the tour. How can we arrange that?
A) Visit our Bike Rental page to reserve your bikes so you can explore the city on your own. You can also talk with your tour guide after the tour and he will arrange for your wishes.
8) I just completed my reservation, should I print the confirmation and bring it with me on the day of the ride?
A) Our reservation system is completely integrated and we don’t require a print out of the confirmation. However, if you want to print it and bring it with you, please do so.
