Awesome way to get to know the Central Park!

Review of: Highlights of Brooklyn Bridge Bike Tour

This was the first time my husband and I visited the Brooklyn brige. The bike tour exceeded ours expectations. Out tour guide Eddie was very polite and gave us historical details about the Manhattan & Brooklyn bridges as well as the Dumbo neighborhood. Eddie had the patience to take pictures of us (and the rest of the group) in the best spots. The weather was awesome (sunny and no wind) which contributed for our perfect morning. Thanks Eddie and Unlimited biking!

Best way to see the Brooklyn Bridge, super guide

Review of: Highlights of Brooklyn Bridge Bike Tour

My wife and I did the Brooklyn Bridge bike tour, guided by Eddie. It was a fantastic experience and afforded wonderful views, with plenty of stops for photo opportunities. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly, making this ride an absolute joy. Don't be afraid if you're not super-fit ... the ride goes at an easy pace, and there are just a handful of fairly gentle climbs to get up over the bridges. The vast majority of this trip is on dedicated cycle paths or lanes, with just a few short sections shared with traffic on quiet roads. The experience was so good that we're thinking of altering our planned itinerary this week to take in another of Unlimited Biking's tours.
