Few things represent our modern city culture like brunch, bicycles, Brooklyn and the ability to siphon money from tourists who want to experience “Real New York,” so it makes sense that this sort of thing exists: a Brooklyn-based bike tour company is now offering a “Brunch in Brooklyn” tour, so you can experience all the wonders of midday breakfast dining for just $65 a person. What a deal!
The tour’s headed by Get Up and Ride, which offers private and group tours of Brooklyn by bike, in addition to a “Classic Brooklyn” bike tour that takes you to Greenpoint, Williamsburg, Downtown Brooklyn, Brooklyn Heights and DUMBO. Their newest offering, the “Brunch in Brooklyn Bike Tour,” offers 2.5 hours of cycling and brunching, with three 20 minute stops: Cup on Norman and Oven.ly in Greenpoint and Whirlybird in Williamsburg. The tour also provides samples of Mast Brothers chocolate, and they’ll be convening for mimosas post-tour, although you’ll have to pay for those out of pocket at a discounted price. And organizers promise the trip will be like a “casual ride with your cool local friend” who takes you to “authentic, off the beaten path locations that only locals know about,” and then charges you $65 for it. And they don’t even take you to Bushwick!
Rides run Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 10am and last 2.5 hours, which is approximately the same amount of time you’d be waiting in line for a brunch table at Egg.
