Bike Tours in New York

A bike tour in New York is a fun way to explore the city. During one of these NYC bike tours you will be expertly guided through your choice of location. Explore Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge, the area along the Hudson River and many other sights. By bike, you’ll see much more than you would walking. So, even if you don’t have much time, it’s an ideal way to sightsee in New York.

Eric’s Tip: “Bike tours in New York aren’t cheap. It’s much cheaper to hire a bike alone. If, however, you’re in New York for the first time, an inexperienced cyclist or travelling with your kids: I would recommend you do take an organised bike tour. You’ll learn the ropes quickly and, most importantly, it’s safer.”

Would you rather explore the city by bike alone? In that case, rent a bike in New York. To make your decision easier, I’ve made a list of my favourite New York bike tours below:
