Description

from The New York City Bike Tour
New York City has more great sights per mile than arguably anywhere else in the world, so why not make the absolute most of a 2-hour window and fill it with a bike adventure through the city that never sleeps? Your guide, a professionally licensed New York City tour guide, will shepherd you through the city, taking you on the most exciting bike ride of your life. Starting in midtown, the tour stops by Lincoln Center, Times Square, the Highline, and more, ending downtown at the South Street Seaport, the historic neighborhood just below the Brooklyn Bridge.

There’s so much to see in New York -- far too much to see on foot alone. Let our tour guides give you a unique perspective of the city, mixing adventure and education to form an unforgettable 2 hours. This tour of the city allows you to see attractions and neighborhoods you want to see and stretch your legs, getting a good, healthy workout. But don’t worry, this isn’t a race.

My students and I rented 23 bikes from Unlimited Biking with Central Park Sightseeing at 56 W. 26th St. New York, MY. Here's how our experience went: 1. Katie, the manager, texted me the wrong address. We ended up 4 blocks away from the store and late for our reservation. 2. One of the bike had a chain that came loose as soon as my student got on. He fixed it himself. 3. 5 minutes in, One of the bikes had bad breaks and My student fell off her bike. I had my entire group wait since I am in charge of all of their safety. We tried to fix the breaks but couldn't and we called Katie She said they would have to walk the bike back and get a new one, so my husband and the student (who cried the whole way back) went back to the store. 4. We started to leave the park in plenty of time, but 2 more bikes wouldn't stop switching gears and my kids kept falling off. I stopped the whole group again to try to fix it, but couldn't. 5. My husband called 11 minutes before our hour was up and said they were not going to give us any extended time even though it was the broken bikes that held us up. At this point I asked my only other adult to go on with the kids who's bikes were still working and I walked with the 2 other students. 6. I arrived at 5:12 and the man outside checking the bikes was still collecting all of my students' wrist bands and writing the time on them. Everyone one in my group was there by 5:12. 7. I went inside to speak to Katie who was rude and short with me immediately, before I even said anything defensive. She said she didn't charge me for 6 bikes on overtime but since my group wasn't all back by 5:15, she was charging me for the rest of them. Please keep in mind she refused to tell my husband that we could have an extend time to get back. And we were definitely 100% back before 5:15. I am a frequent visitor to the city. My student perform in Carnegie Hall at leave once every 2 years. I Do a lot of research and organizing for these trips and in my 10 years as a teacher, I've never had such a terrible experience. These kids worked hard to get here and the trip costs a lot of money. Thus was supposed to be an affordable, fun experience. It turned into the opposite because we were given broken bikes. Katie kept saying the bikes were new. The broken bikes had 2016 on them. They were not new. My students should not have to pay more money because we were given broken bikes.

We booked a guided bike tour trough Central Park. The guide spoke our own language which was very nice. It was very cold but although the guide took his time for the tour. A very personal way to get to know the city better by a local.

"Great fun riding hired bikes"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

Hired bikes from Central Park Bike Rentals. There are a couple of blocks to negotiate to get to the park itself but this can easily be done by pushing the bikes. The hire included D locks. It’s worth checking that your tyres are fully inflated as one tyre on one of the 5 bikes we hired was under inflated. All bikes had gears and were fairly easy to ride although my wife’s “bike with a basket” was noticeably heavier than the other 4. The park was superb to ride round with mostly flat sections. There is an uphill section about three quarters of the way round which might require pushing of the bike. However most people managed to ride up hill. A great way to see the ponds, lakes, etc and watch some baseball. You could probably ride the circuit in 20 mins. We took a few hours with stops. Would thoroughly recommend it.

We are a family of 5, grandparents, parents and a 9 year old boy. It was our first visit to New York and we had been planning our trip for over a year. We had decided to take a lot of the organised tours rather than wander aimlessly around and get lost. We took the tour on Sunday the 8th of April. This was our first tour and Joel was our guide. We had a really good time with him. He took us around the park and pointed out all the things we had wanted to visit and much more. Telling us about buildings around the park, the history of them and who lived there. He gave us a lot of information on the history of the park. He was very visual with his approach and our little grandson enjoyed the way Joel would act a little scene when explaining something. He was very enthusiastic about the tour which showed in the way he delivered it. We had a great time with him. We would recommend this tour to all age groups. It's a good way to see the park without getting list and to get to know the main areas.
