  • We used to live in Harlem so this tour was great for memory lane! While on the tour there were beautiful places I had never been to such as Alexander Hamilton's house and the beautiful Hudson River on bike. The history of Harlem was fun, good to know and made me feel more connected with the community. The guide was great! She had tons of energy and I didn’t feel bored at all!!! Highly recommended!!!!!!
  • The guys that work here are great. They're very helpful and knowledgeable about bikes! It's a community oriented business, black owned I believe and overall a great experience every time I go.
  • My experience with these cycling classes was absolutely amazing. I want to recommend these cycling classes to everyone who wants to learn cycling in a hassle-free way.
  • I appreciate the customers around really theredown to earth employee are friendly
  • My partner and I both agree that this tour was one of the highlights of our long holiday in the Americas. Maxine, the owner and our tour leader, is very enthusiastic and provided us with a great understanding of Harlem, past and present. The tour is not strenuous and we had ample opportunity to take photographs and ask questions. Do not visit New York without visiting Harlem and taking this tour!
