At a Glance

The story and the flavor of New York City changes depending on the neighborhood you’re in — and there’s no better way to experience its neighborhoods than by bicycle! Ride through the East Village to hear the history of immigrants and the tenements that housed them. Venture to Williamsburg and learn about the centuries-old traditions of its Hassidic Jew population, while on the Upper East Side, see how the fortunes of early businessmen helped to shape the city. You’ll also ride through the East Coast Greenway and to Central Park, take in a sunset view from the Brooklyn Bridge and marvel at how the Manhattan skyline has changed and redefined the city through the years.
Our Flex learning adventures offer more flexible schedules than our traditional programs, with ample independent time and several meals on your own. Enjoy the camaraderie of the group while also getting time to explore on your own.
