This East River waterfront tour leads across three bridges, through three boroughs, and visits two East River parks—East River Park in Manhattan and East River State Park in Brooklyn. Most of the journey runs along greenways and bike lanes, including almost 4 miles of car- free bridge biking across the Queensboro, Pulaski, and Manhattan Bridges. The ride is a great option for anyone who enjoys river views and discovering what connects—and distinguishes—some of the boroughs. Your starting point aff ords a unique perspective on Manhattan’s southern-most bridges—an eye-level view of the Brooklyn Bridge’s pillars and the Manhattan Bridge’s underbelly—that neatly frame Downtown Brooklyn across the water. The ride leads along separated waterfront bikeways that are entirely car-free and on-road bike lanes where traffic is mostly light. There’s moderate to heavy traffic along the on-road portion from the East River waterfront to the entry to the Queensboro Bridge. Stay especially alert here.
