Classic Bike Tour of Brooklyn

The cycling fanatics at Get Up and Ride, a bike-tour company that launched last summer, lead this spin through a few Brooklyn neighborhoods. The 12-mile ride (which takes about four hours, so you’re going at a leisurely pace) includes stops both at historic sites, such as the Brooklyn Heights Promenade, and at newer spots, including Brooklyn Roasting Company in Dumbo. There’s even a quick break aboard the East River Ferry, which transports participants back to the Williamsburg starting point at the ride’s end. One of the stops—Brooklyn Grange—is a working farm located in the Brooklyn Navy Yard, and opened last summer.

Meet at McCarren Park, Bedford Ave at North 12th St, Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
