This tour gives you unique perspectives of the city’s harbor life—first from afar and then from up close. You’ll cycle through the southwest Brooklyn communities of Sunset Park and Bay Ridge to visit two tucked- away neighborhood parks on hills—Owl’s Head Park and Sunset Park—each offering unobstructed views of the harbor below. Then bike along 9 miles (out and back) of waterfront greenway, flanking those same New York waters. Sunset Park and Owl’s Head Park are two out-of- the - way parks that both offer far-reaching views of New York’s harbor life and Manhattan’s jagged skyline. Bike lanes connect them both to Prospect Park, making them great to reach by bike. From Prospect Park, catch the bike lane along Fort Hamilton Parkway, heading southwest.
