There's a reason why many residents of Brooklyn enjoy traveling on two wheels: the amount of space and pockets of quiet streets make it feel much more manageable to navigate than its neighbor to the west. Bikelyn Tours allows visitors to rent bicycles and discover Brooklyn with a small or private group. Choose from four guided itineraries that focus on a cluster of neighborhoods. For example, the 9.5-mile Williamsburg Tour takes cyclists around Williamsburg, past the Brooklyn Navy Yard and East River waterfront and through Bed-Stuy and Brooklyn Heights. Other routes focus on Red Hook, Park Slope and DUMBO. Tours, pace and breaks can all be customized, and guides are fluent in Dutch and German.
