NYC Graffiti Bike Tours
As an enthusiastic Brooklyn resident and cyclist of 13 years, I've found that the best way to discover this diverse and exciting borough is by bicycle. I began bike commuting through Brooklyn, Manhattan, and the Bronx in 2006 and now enjoy running a Food & Cycling group, which has allowed me to explore just about every single NYC neighborhood and stumble on hidden gems that don't usually present themselves to pedestrians.
BROOKLYN GRAFFITI BIKE TOURS
Since 2014, I've led food and cycling rides around the city, helping tourists and native New Yorkers discover hidden gems and world-renowned art work and food. I have led personalized street art bike rides and food explorations through Brooklyn, Lower Manhattan, Harlem (Uptown), Queens. What better way to spend an afternoon than marveling at three-story murals or sampling authentic NYC food and international cuisine?
On my Brooklyn rides, we start in the epicenter of New York City's street art and graffiti scene and move around to various Brooklyn neighborhoods. Locals can bring their own bike, otherwise, we select the rental bike that fits best then make frequent stops as we bike approximately 15 miles at a relaxed pace. As we visit and photograph some of the city's most Insgtagramable street art and murals, we discuss local food, culture, and tradition.
Upcoming Brooklyn Graffiti Bike Tour dates:

Those don't work for you? Contact me to arrange a private graffiti or food tour!
Before starting my own travel agency, I worked in social justice and community development so the tour also visits impressive murals that community groups have installed to lift up the achievements of their neighborhood and address pressing concerns like cat calling, displacement, and police brutality.
