Join the Brooklyn Bridge Bike Tour. Over 120,000 vehicles, 4000 pedestrians, and 3000 bicycles cross the Brooklyn Bridge every day and New York City is one of the most bicycle friendly cities in the United States. The bridge connects Manhattan to Brooklyn and is 125 years old.
This iconic structure is a must see for any native or visitor to NYC and this Brooklyn Bridge Bike Tour has the best ways to do so. The bridge’s legendary promenade stretches between and above the traffic lanes, often amidst the beautiful lines of the suspension cables creating a spider’s web of support for the bridge itself.
After the 15 minute climb, the view from the center of the bridge is breathtaking. At 160 feet above the water, the entire New York Harbor is at your feet, including the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, Staten Island, the port of Brooklyn, and several miles of the New Jersey coastline.
Following this, you will descend into Brooklyn itself where you’ll be able to stroll among the historic houses of Brooklyn Heights and view the NYC Financial District from across the water. Finally, you’ll take the return trip back across the bridge to the South Street Seaport.
