How long is this tour?

The whole tour is approximately two hours, but there will be plenty of stops and opportunities for photos. We will cover approximately 7 miles/11 kilometers.

Besides the bridge, what else will we see?

Before crossing the Brooklyn Bridge, we will spend some time in the City Hall district, or the Financial district of Manhattan. This is a great opportunity to see this part of the city and lay the groundwork for our tour. From there, you will make your way towards the bridge, and then make several stops on the bridge to inspect the architecture and take in the views of Manhattan and Brooklyn. Upon arrival in Brooklyn, you will have a chance to ride through the neighborhood where the historic houses stand.

Is this tour good for kids?

We think so! There is a slight uphill section at the beginning of the tour, but kids who ride bikes regularly should be fine. We do ask that all children be able to ride their own bikes on this tour; our route unfortunately isn’t great for buggies or tag-along tandems. We also ask that all guests under 18 be accompanied by an adult.

Is the cost of food & drink included?

On this tour, we do not have any stops scheduled to purchase food or drink. After the tour we are happy to recommend some great food/drink options.

Do I have to wear a helmet?

Yes, helmets are required for safety.

Can I leave the tour early?

We kindly ask that once you depart with your guide, you intend on staying for the duration of the tour. The tour is about two hours long, so please plan accordingly.

Can I reschedule in the event of bad weather?

We intend on operating rain or shine, and we advise all guests to dress appropriately for the weather.
