See Bed Stuy from a bike seat on a series of free tours running twice a week from May through the fall.

The guided tours, arranged by Citi Bike and nonprofit group Bedford Stuyvesant Restoration Corporation, will be led by various local groups and individuals. The Saturday, May 21, tour is set to be led by a Bed Stuy resident, while the Wednesday, May 25, tour will be headed up by the NYC Department of Health.

The free tours will take place at 6 p.m. every Wednesday and 11 a.m. every Saturday, from May 4 through a not-yet-disclosed date in October.

Attendees are welcome to bring their own bikes, or those 16 and older can borrow a Citi Bike for free.

The tours take place on a first-come, first-served basis. Most will begin and end at Restoration Plaza, but some have other start and end points noted. See below for a full schedule so far.

For those interested in leading a tour or volunteering for the program, visit Restoration Bed Stuy’s website.
